Paying tribute to her old pal and former The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Betty White Show castmate on Monday, White said, "Georgia was one of a kind and the absolute best".

Engel, twice Emmy-nominated for playing Ted Baxter's girlfriend-then-wife Georgette Franklin/Baxter on The Mary Tyler Moore and thrice-nominated for Everybody Loves Raymond, died Friday in Princeton, New Jersey.

More recently, Engel joined the cast of the CBS hit Everybody Loves Raymond as Robert's mother-in-law Pat, scoring three straight Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series from 2003 to 2005.

Georgia Engel, who played the charmingly innocent, small-voiced Georgette on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and amassed a string of other TV and stage credits, has died. Engel also reunited with White once again on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland, along with appearances on Passions, The Office and Two and a Half Men.
