Betty White spent years working with late actress Georgia Engel, on the classic The Mary Tyler Moore Show and on her own sitcom, The Betty White Show, in the '70s, and they reunited on Hot in Cleveland 40 years later. She is seen here at the opening night of the Broadway musical The Drowsy Chaperone in 2006. What was initially meant to be a single-episode bit part in 1972 turned into a permanent role that Engel played until the series ended in 1977. She received two Emmy nominations for her work on the show.

The New York Times is reporting that Engel, a five-time Emmy-nominated actress, was a Christian Scientist and did not seek medical attention. "She touched so many people", said her agent, Jacqueline Stander.

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

The actress, born Georgia Bright Engel, was born on July 28, 1948, in Washington to parents Benjamin and Ruth Engel. She appeared in the sitcom The Betty White Show, reuniting her with White who had played Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

White has been fond of Engel for years, even calling her a "pure gold" friend and co-worker in a 2012 interview.

"It's given me such joy", said Engel, who had hoped to see it move to Broadway. She also appeared on The Love Boat, Two and a Half Men and The Office. The musical, about older adults who school themselves in hip hop to perform in half-time shows, was staged in New Jersey previous year.
