So sad. I loved Georgette. She was so sweet and kind, and unlike most sitcoms today that would have thought it was so funny and "edgy" to have her become a harridan, she remained sweet and kind to the end. Georgia just had a radiance to her. 


I guess it must have been sudden, as she had a brief role on One Day At a Time last year and looked about the same as she has for a while. 


I hope she knew how many fans she had.

Not only was she wonderful as Georgette, she was hilarious as Shirley Burleigh on Coach. I loved the episode where Howard and Shirley are driving Hayden and Christine insane, trying to be their best friends. "Pardon me for yelling!" she chirped in that famous baby voice. It still cracks me up all these years later. Hard to believe that she's the second Coach performer we've lost in recent weeks, after Katherine Helmond.


It's also hard to believe that she was in reality young enough to play Ted Knight's daughter and instead played his wife (they were nearly 25 years apart in age). The age gap didn't seem noticeable at all when watching them onscreen together. 


May she rest in peace. She was one of a kind.

The world just seems a little smaller knowing she's gone. I loved watching her after school with the MTM gang.
