Country singer Joey Feek dies after battle with cervical cancer

- Joey Feek, who rose to fame as a member of the soulful husband-and-wife country duo Joey + Rory, died Friday, according to her husband’s blog. She was 40 years old.

Feek made headlines in recent months as her husband, Rory, blogged on behalf of the couple about their experiences as she fought cervical cancer that eventually spread to her colon.

When the songstress’ cancer spread in October 2015, she informed fans that she was stopping treatment. She entered hospice care in early November, and Rory kept fans up-to-date in the months that followed.

“My wife’s greatest dream came true today.  She is in Heaven,” Rory Feek wrote on his blog.
