Comedic actress Georgia Engel, a five-time Emmy nominee from her years on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Everybody Loves Raymond, has died at the age of 70.

She also originated the role of Mrs. Tottendale in 2006 Broadway hit The Drowsy Chaperone. She passed away on Friday (April 12) in Princenton, N.J. The cause of death is unknown because she was a Christian Scientist and did not consult doctors, her friend told the New York Times.
