Internet sensation, Felicia ‘Auntie Fee’ O’Dell has died according to a Facebook status by her son, Tavis Hunter. She was 59 years old.
Fee became known as ‘Chef Sista Girl’ when in 2014 she was filmed by her son cooking ‘good ass chicken’ on YouTube. She she spent 10 years in the penitentiary, had an obvious way with words and food. Like so many black women, she made something out of nothing.
She quickly became popular for her quick wit, talent with curse words and down to earth persona. That was followed up by ‘sweet treats for the kids’. Those videos have been watched millions of times.
Because of her YouTube popularity she had appearances on Steve Harvey and Jimmy Kimmel Live and was a fan favorite, garnering her own official YouTube Channel with over 500,000 subscribers. She also appeared in the film “Barbershop 3” as Anthony Anderson’s mother, Mabel.
She was truly a woman who made the best with the cards she was dealt and was able to create amazing opportunities just being herself.
You will truly be missed, Auntie Fee. May You Rest in Peace.
