Joey Feek Funeral Details Revealed
Joey + Rory's Rory Feek is back home in Tennessee with daughter Indiana. The singer and husband to the late Joey Feek shared a photo of himself and and his daughter visiting with two old friends on Saturday afternoon. Funeral details have also been revealed.
In the picture, Indiana is all smiles as Rory holds her on his shoulders with one hand and strokes his horse's head with another. The family been away from their Tennessee farm for several months as Joey came to the end of her life in Indiana.

The funeral will be private — he'd indicated previously that Joey will be buried in a simple wood box on their family property. In lieu of flowers, fans are urged to send donations to:
Joey and Indy

Vancouver, WA 98668.
Joey Feek was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014 and underwent successful surgery, only to find out the cancer had returned one year later. In October 2015 she announced that she was ending treatment. Doctors didn't expect her to live long, but shortly after learning she and Rory had been nominated for a Grammy she made it a goal to live through the awards show, as well as daughter Indiana's second birthday and the release of the couple's album of hymns. When those events passed, Joey told her husband she was tired of fighting. After a round of goodbyes, and last kisses, she drifted off to a deep sleep. Days later, she breathed her last breath.
