According to John Quilty, a close friend and executor, the actress passed away on Friday, April 12, 2019, at the age of 70, but the cause of death is yet to be revealed.

Far from being a regular actress, Engel was famous for her warm smile and the way she always managed to steal the show even when she was not the main character.

A VERY SPECIAL PERFORMER

Following her death, several fans couldn't help but take to social media to pay tribute to the woman who brought them joy and so many laughs throughout the years.

Brett White, a Twitter user and host of the "MustHaveSeenTV" podcast, described Engel as a "secret weapon's secret weapon," someone who could cause the audience to laugh to tears with a single line per episode.

According to White, Engel had the talent to energize a scene and was so influential that she could even save a whole episode by herself.

A PRESTIGIOUS CAREER IN TELEVISION

Engel was a known Christian Scientist, which means that she believed faith prayer could cure any sickness, and was featured in more than sixty episodes of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."

The late 70-year-old maintained a special friendship with legend Betty White, who paid homage to her good friend by describing her as "one of a kind and the absolute best."
