Country singer Joey Feek was laid to rest earlier this week in a private funeral in Tennessee, her representative tells ABC News.

The singer, who performed with her husband as the duo Joey + Rory, died at the age of 40 last week after a battle with terminal cervical cancer. Her rep added that a public memorial is scheduled for this Sunday in Indiana.

"A public memorial service remembering Joey Martin Feek will be held on Sunday, March 13, at 2:30 p.m. in the Alexandria-Monroe High School gymnasium," the rep said of the Indiana service.

"Bill and Gloria Gaither will host the service, along with Rev. Jerry Young and Mike Owens. Rory Feek, his daughters and members of the Martin family will be in attendance and are exceedingly grateful for this community’s outpouring of support throughout Joey’s life and most recently during her illness," the rep said.

Joey's husband, Rory Feek, 49, has been very active on his blog and social media, sharing news and pictures of his wife's battle with fans. Last week, he shared the news of her passing.

"My wife's greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven," he wrote on his site This Life I Live. "The cancer is gone, the pain has ceased and all her tears are dry."

Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer three months after giving birth to their daughter Indiana back in May 2014. Late last year, after treatments weren't working, the Feeks decided to return to her childhood home, so she could be surrounded by close friends and family for her remaining months.
