Georgia Engel, star of Everybody Loves Raymond, has died at the age of 70.
Engel – who was known for her sweet-sounding speaking voice – was nominated for five Emmys during her career.
She first rose to fame on The Mary Tyler Moore show in the 70s, playing Georgette Franklin, the wife of anchorman Ted Baker.
In later years Engel had roles in The Office, Two and a Half Men and the movie Grown Ups 2.
According to The New York Times, the actress died in Princeton New Jersey.
A course of death has yet to be determined because Georgia was a Christian Scientist and did not seek medical help, her executor John Quilty has claimed.
During her decade spanning career Engel was nominated for a Primetime Emmy award for five times – twice for playing the girlfriend of Ted Baxter; and three times for her role as Pat MacDougall on Everybody Loves Raymond.
Her final screen appearance came in the One Day at a Time reboot on Netflix.
As well as her various TV roles, Engel had acting credits on Broadway.
The actress is survived by her sisters Robin Engel and Penny Lusk.
