We’re beyond heartbroken. On March 4, Joey Feek tragically passed away at her home following a nearly two-year long battle with cancer. As expected, fans of country singer are completely devastated, and have taken to Twitter in droves to mourn the brave star. See their heartfelt tweets below.
Joey Feek‘s fans are absolutely overcome with emotion after learning that the country singer had tragically passed away at her home in Indiana on March 4.

In the wake of her passing, fans have taken to Twitter to mourn the loss of the brave signer and the legacy that she left behind. See their touching messages here.
Our hearts are broken. Joey quietly passed away on March 4, surrounded by her friends and family, including her husband Rory Feek, 49, and their two-year-old daughter Indiana. Before her heartbreaking death, Joey got her final wish and was able to celebrate Indiana’s 2nd birthday Feb. 17. Check out the tweets below to see what fans are saying.
Joey will always be remembered for her courage and strength. The country singer was first diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014, and although she underwent aggressive treatment, it returned in 2015. Joey and Rory announced in October of last year that the illness was terminal, and the 40-year-old entered a hospice program in November. Joey had stayed incredibly strong throughout though, fighting for her husband and daughter the best she could. She was photographed smiling during Christmas, and continued to spend time with her loved ones right up until the end. It’s heartbreaking to know that Joey fought so hard for her life only to have it ripped away from her at such a young age. May she rest in peace.
