Memorial services have been set for two Columbia siblings who died earlier just this week.

Friends of the family and funeral officials confirmed to KRCG 13 Sally Blocker, the sister of Rovon Blocker, died Tuesday, just days after her brother's death.

According to the Parker-Millard Funeral Home, 25-year-old Sally and 20-year-old Rovon will have a joint visitation Tuesday July 17 from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. A homegoing has been scheduled immediately following visitation at The Crossing on Southland Drive.

Law enforcement officials are not yet saying how Sally died but said they did not suspect foul play.

Police have said they detained a juvenile following Rovon's shooting death.

Rovon's high school football coach, Justin Conyers, said he couldn't wrap his head around losing a child, let alone two. Conyers said Rovon was a star on Battle's state championship football team in 2014. He said Sally was a graduate of Rock Bridge High School.

"I'm at a loss for words, I don't even know what to say, there's no way you can even fathom that happening," Conyers said.
