She rose to fame playing Georgette Franklin on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
The actress died in Princeton, New Jersey, according to the New York Times.
But a cause of death has not been determined because Georgia was a Christian Scientist and reportedly did not see a doctor.
Born in Washington on July 28, 1948, Engel graduated from ballet school, and earned a theatre degree at the University of Hawaii.
She appeared as a replacement actor near the end of the 1964-70 original Broadway run of Hello, Dolly!
Engel joined The Mary Tyler Moore Show in 1972 for its third season as Georgette.
