Funeral arrangements have been scheduled for the couple killed in an explosion on the city’s southeast side late Saturday night.

The funeral for Jennifer and Dion Longworth will be held at the St. Barnabus Catholic Church in Greenwood, Ind. on Monday, Nov. 19. 

A calling for friends and family will be held on Sunday, Nov. 18 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Wilson-St. Pierre Funeral home in Greenwood, Ind.

The Longworths were killed and seven other residents were injured after their neighbors’ home in the Richmond Hill subdivision exploded just after 11 p.m. 

Approximately 200 residents were evacuated from their houses following the blast. During a briefing Monday, investigators stated 29 of the 80 affected homes remain uninhabitable.

Sunday night, dozens of people gathered outside Southwest Elementary School to honor Jennifer Longworth, who was a second-grade teacher at the school. 

The official cause of the explosion is still being investigated.
