Rory Feek has begun funeral arrangements for his beloved wife Joey.

As we reported, the country singer succumbed to terminal cancer on Friday after a hard-fought battle under hospice care in her Indiana hometown.

The 50-year-old devoted husband and father returned to the family’s farm in Pottsville, Tennessee with the couple’s daughter Indiana following Joey’s passing to lay her to rest.

Back in November, Rory revealed on his blog This Life I Live that one of Joey’s wishes was to be buried in a “rough-cut wooden box with a cross on it” made from “wood at the farm.”


“And find a good spot in the family cemetery in the field behind our house, where we put your mama’s ashes last year. [Leave] room enough beside my headstone for you to join me someday… in God’s time.”

Our hearts go out to the Feek’s as they continue to grieve.
