On Wednesday, June O'Dell said the family was in pain as Fee remained unresponsive at Harbor-UCLA.
She gained popularity after her video "Sweet Treats for Kids" went viral in 2014 and was viewed by more than 4.5 million times. She had over half a million subscribers to her Youtube channel, made appearances on TV shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Steve Harvey Show, and was featured in the film Barbershop 3. On Tuesday night, TMZ mistakenly reported she had died and her fans mourned her on Facebook, where she has more than 700,000 followers. Moments before her passing, Auntie Fee's son recorded a touching video of his mother lying on a hospital bed.
With WorldStar dubbing the above clip "the realest cooking show on the internet", we were introduced to the world of Felicia "Auntie Fee" O'Dell, a Los Angeles-based cook who, along with her son Tavis, specialized in showing people how to make fire food at a minimal cost. I love you and you was my twin.
Her last video was posted on March 6th - it was a review for an L.A. restaurant called Art's Wings and Things.
In the past, Auntie Fee had been criticized for her unhealthy dishes full of lard and grease.
"It turns out she took after our mother, who struggled with high blood pressure and diabetes", O'Dell said.
Nearly every day, Fee's kitchen has been a revolving door of hungry friends and family. "Ain't nobody gonna tell me I gotta do this, I gotta do that".
