‘She’s in Heaven,’ Joey Feek’s Husband Rory Tells Fans
Joey Feek, popular country/gospel singer, has died after a long battle with terminal cancer. Her husband, Rory, confirmed her death Friday telling fans on his blog, “My wife’s greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven.”
He said she died around 2:30 p.m. Friday with her loved ones surrounding her.
“My precious bride breathed her last. And a moment later took her first breath on the other side,” Feek wrote in his blog, This Life I Live.
“When a person has been through as much pain and struggle as Joey’s been through, you just want it to be over. You want them to not have to hurt anymore, more that you want them to stay with you. And so, it makes the hard job of saying goodbye just a little easier,” Feek wrote.
He told followers that he will be moving back to Tennessee with their daughters – after spending the last several months in Indiana. He said that although it is hard to think about going home without Joey, he knows that’s where she’d want them to be.

The Feeks made up the well loved and respected duo Joey + Rory. Their critically acclaimed worked earned them “Top New Vocal Duo” at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards.
Their classic country sound created a loyal following and they even had a television show called “The Joey + Rory Show” before Joey became sick.

Editor’s note: I happened, by simple chance, to see Joey and Rory first perform on You Can Duet on the Country Music Channel. They were adorable, they were talented, and their love of each other was apparent. Subsequently learning of their faith, all the pieces fell into place: they were a living picture of a biblical marriage, each sacrificing for the other. And their great love infused their music with something grand and indefinable. My prayers are with Rory, that he’ll be comforted until the day he’s reunited with Joey and the Savior. Tami Jackson
