Georgia Engel Remembered On Betty White Instagram:

Engel's friend and executor, John Quilty, said she died on Friday, April 12, in Princeton, New Jersey, according to The Associated Press.

Refresh for updates... "Friends Forever", writes Betty White of her late Mary Tyler Moore Show friend and co-star Georgia Engel.

Actress Georgia Engel, known for her role as the lovable Georgette on the CBS sitcom "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", has died at the age of 70. Cast as bubbly Georgette, her part kept expanding as audiences delighted in her sweet delivery in contrast to her TV husband Ted Knight's comedic bluster as narcissistic anchorman Ted Baxter.

She recalled that a possible Everybody Loves Raymond spinoff set to include her and Fred Willard never come to fruition, which she called a great disappointment.

Her most recent stage role of note was appearing opposite Lillias White, Donna McKechnie, and Andre de Shields in the musical Half Time at Paper Mill Playhouse.

The musical, about older adults who school themselves in hip hop to perform in half-time shows, was staged in New Jersey past year.

Georgia's most recently Broadway role was as Mrs. Tottendale in the original production of The Drowsy Chaperone.

Miss Engel also appeared in made for television movies as well as big screen features including Grown Ups 2, Open Season, The Sweetest Thing, and Doctor Doolittle 2.

Engel is seen with former co-star Mary Tyler Moore in NY in 1992.
