Georgia Engel Obituary

Georgia Engel passed away at age 70 on April 12, 2019. She was best known for her role as Georgette Franklin on ’The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ and Pat McDougall on ’Everybody Loves Raymond.’ Her cause of death is undetermined because she was a Christian Scientist and did not see doctors, which was mentioned by her friend John Quilty.

Over the span of her career, Engel was nominated for 2 Emmy Awards for her role on ’The Mary Tyler Moore Show’, and an additional 3 Emmy nominations for her role as Robert Barone's mother-in-law on ’Everybody Loves Raymond.’

When she completed college, she followed her dream and moved to New York eventually starring as Minnie Fay in the Broadway musical ’Hello, Dolly!’

Her role in ’The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ began as a guest role, but she proved to be a fan favorite and was loved by her cast members, so she became a regular playing alongside actor Ted Knight as his girlfriend turned wife.

She also appeared in ’The Sweetest Thing’ and did voice overs in movies such as ’Dr. Dolittle 2’ and ’Open Season’.
