Rory & Indiana Feek Receive Standing Ovation At Joey’s Hometown Memorial Service

Rory and Indiana Feek

Just days after Joey Feek‘s private funeral, a public memorial service was held in the late country singer’s hometown of Alexandria, Indiana.

Hundreds of mourners gathered on Sunday in the Alexandria-Monroe High School gymnasium to pay their respects after Joey lost her battle with stage IV cervical cancer earlier this month at the age of 40.

Joey is survived by her loving husband Rory and their two-year-old daughter Indiana, who received a standing ovation upon entering the gym.

Rory shared of the emotional service:

“It’s a special way for the family to say thanks to the community, and for the community to love on the family.”

Joey’s sisters, husband, and high school basketball coach all shared words with the gatherers before singing some of her favorite songs including Lean On Me.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Feek’s and all those who loved Joey.
