After 2 years of fighting the terrible illness cancer, the wonderful Joey Feek (40) form the husband and wife duo, Joey & Rory, passed away on Friday, March 04.
She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014 which soon spread despite surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatment. In October 2015, Rory said Feek had decided to end treatment.
Joey wrote in his blog: "My wife’s greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven." He added: "At 2:30 this afternoon, as we were gathered around her, holding hands and praying, my precious bride breathed her last. And a moment later took her first breath on the other side."
Joey was a very big Dolly Parton fan since she was little. One of her biggest dreams was to meet Dolly. She had no idea that Dolly even knew who she was. But that changed one Friday evening this past November. Joey received a DVD from Dolly giving her recognition. Rory said it was the most beautiful moment he has ever been part of.
Rory and his two daughters are now moving back to Tennessee after living in Indiana for four-and-a-half months. "It is where she wants us to be & it is where she will be."
"So if it’s okay, I’m gonna close, wipe my tears and pack our bags to hit the road headed south.She’s already got a head-start on me."
As far as funeral plans goes - the country singer will be buried following a private service, on an undisclosed date, at the Feeks’ family cemetery. Rory Feek has previously shared that his wife will be buried in a simple casket on their family property. No public memorial has been announced.
Rest In Piece Joey Feek.
