Engel, the beloved actress from The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Everybody Loves Raymond as well as stage hits including The Drowsy Chaperone, is being remembered today by co-stars and colleagues for the big-hearted comedy style that was as unique as her personality.
“Georgia was one of a kind – the absolute best,” White said to NBC News earlier today. Later, she posted the Instagram message (see it below).
“I am in shock,” tweeted Raymond co-star Patricia Heaton. “Georgia was an absolute angel – so dear, so sweet, so talented. God bless you Georgia!” Heaton also recalled one of her favorite Raymond episodes featuring Engel.
