Felicia O’Dell aka Auntie Fee is the Los Angeles woman who rose to stardom after her son released a video of her cooking on Facebook that went viral was taken off a life support system after suffering a massive heart attack on March 14th.
The 59-year-old had been hospitalized at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center after collapsing at her south LA home, and unfortunately she didn’t pull through. Her son and cameraman Tavis Hunter broke the news in a heartfelt Facebook post.
Many of O’Dell’s video have gone viral because of her unique way of explaining how to prepare soul food using a sprinkle of profanity. “How to feed Seven People with just $3.00”, Auntie Fee’s Baked Chicken, to a series of other youtube videos that have since went viral of her preparing her dishes.
“Thank you for all the prayers and hope. It did all it can do and now God has made the decision to take my mother home where it’s peace and joy and I’m okay with that. She can finally be happy. RIP Momma Felicia Auntie Fee O’Dell. I love you and you was my twin. When you was going through it, I went through it and now it’s time for you to relax and watch me do it baby,” he wrote, noting his mood was “heartbroken” and he was still there at the hospital.
Soul food is a traditional African American cuisine with roots in the Deep South. Typical dishes include fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, greens cooked with pork and many desserts. Traditional soul food can be high in calories, saturated fat, salt and sugar, which can negatively impact health.
