Joey Feek Passes Away At 40

Joey Feek has died after a battle with cervical cancer. She was 40 years old.

“My wife’s greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven,” Rory Feek wrote on the blog today in a post titled ‘A Dream Come True.’

“The cancer is gone, the pain has ceased and all her tears are dry. Joey is in the arms of her beloved brother Justin and using her pretty voice to sing for her savior. 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. As I held her hand and kissed her goodbye one last time… I was reminded of another dream of hers that came true. ”

Joey was first diagnosed with cervical cancer in June 2014, about four months after the birth of Indiana, their daughter.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
