Georgia Engel, the actress who won over hearts on the critically acclaimed "Mary Tyler Moore Show" in the 1970s, has died at the age of 70. She is seen here at the opening night of the Broadway musical The Drowsy Chaperone in 2006.

The New York Times is reporting that Engel, a five-time Emmy-nominated actress, was a Christian Scientist and did not seek medical attention.

Betty White and Georgia Engel pose with the cast of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, including Mary Tyler Moore and, back row from left, Ted Knight, Gavin MacLeod and Ed Asner, on November 21, 1975.

She died on April 12 in Princeton, N.J., her agent, Jacqueline Stander, confirmed.

"I know the world will be sad and sorry".

She reflected to the Star that her career was filled with as many flops as successes.

She landed a guest role on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", but soon captured the hearts of both the audience and her fellow cast members and continued to appear on the show as the girlfriend - and later wife - of TV newsman Ted Baxter, played by Ted Knight.

Her prolific career included guest appearances on series including "The Love Boat", "Fantasy Island", "Coach" and "Two and a Half Men".

"It was only going to be one episode", Engel said, "and I was just supposed to have a few lines in a party scene, but they kept giving me more and more to do". "What you see is what you get".

Georgia Bright Engel was born in July 1948 in Washington, D.C., to parents Benjamin, a Coast Guard officer, and Ruth Engel. "I've never seen anything like it". Last year, she performed hip hop in "Half Time" at the award-winning Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. Her "Hot in Cleveland" role reunited her with Betty White, her co-star in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (1972-1977) and "The Betty White Show" (1977-1978).

Funeral services for Engel, whose survivors include her sisters Robin Engel and Penny Lusk, will be private, Quilty said.

Valerie Bertinelli, who starred in "Hot in Cleveland", called Engel "the sweetest, kindest, dearest woman. And insane talented." She wrote on Twitter, "I will miss her".
