Mittie Lee Fellows, 82 years old from Mabank, TX passed into the loving arms of Jesus Christ on April 2nd, 2021, in Athens, TX surrounded by her loving family.

Mittie was born July 22, 1938 in Troy, Alabama to James R. and Annie M. Senn. She had many fond memories of her fun childhood running freely through the country.

Mittie's work ethic and integrity at the ice cream shop at Woolworths brought her to meet the love of her life, Jim Fellows in Fort Bennings, GA.

Upon getting married Mittie and Jim moved to Southern California where she excelled in raising her family, owning her business "Mitties Mud House," babysitting and being by Jim's side on all their crazy adventures.

Upon her and Jim's retirement they moved to East Texas to fullfill her dream of fishing out of their own backyard in her "Crappy Croppy Hole ".

Mittie was the Queen of baking goodies, cakes, and candy. She was known throughout the family and neighborhood for her homemade pizza, tacos and her meatballs 'n' spaghetti. She spread her love through her cooking!!

She hunted, fished, hiked, boated, snow sled, and rode alongside with her dirt bike riding family on her Honda dirt bike...Camping with her family was one if her favorite memories.

By far her gardening, flowers and vegetable garden was where her heart lied. She had a green thumb better than any of us ever saw.

Mittie cherished birthdays and all holidays. Her and Jim would spend months making homemade gifts, candies and goodies to give for Christmas.

Mittie was a wonderful and kind woman. The greatest wife and best friend to Jim for over 60 years. She was a strong woman that adored her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

I spent lots of days at the Fellows household, Debbie has been my best friend since ninth grade. Mittie was the neighborhood Mom that always made you feel at home. She’d say pull up a chair and make a plate, they always had something delicious on the stove! She loved kids, cooking and most of all her family ❤️

Your Mom is now at peace with your Dad and I hope this brings your family comfort.

RIP Mittie 🙏
Love, Kathy & Don
