On Sunday, 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late music icon Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, died surrounded by her family nearly six months after being found unconscious.

A family source told ET that Bobbi Kristina will be given a funeral service this week in Atlanta, Georgia, after which her body will be flown to New Jersey where she will be buried alongside her mother.

Houston, who died on Feb. 11, 2012, after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, was laid to rest eight days later at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey. Houston was buried next to her father, John Russell Houston.

Brown, who had been very close to her mother, was 18 when Houston died. Brown was in the lobby of the Beverly Hilton when she was informed of her mother's death. According to reports at the time, she suffered a hysterical breakdown and had to be sedated and hospitalized. She was soon discharged after being treated for severe stress and anxiety.

Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31, 2015, and was then taken to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia, where she was put on a ventilator to assist her breathing. She was later placed in a medically induced coma at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital.

Nearly two months later, she was moved to a rehabilitation center, where she remained until June 24, when she was moved to the hospice center where she died on Sunday.
