A public memorial service was held in Corona Wednesday for golfing pro Erica Blasberg.The 25-year-old Corona native died May 9 at her home in Henderson, Nevada. Coroner's officials are still investigating her death and police say they have not ruled out suicide. Results on an autopsy have yet to be announced.

The memorial service was held at the Eagle Glen Golf Club. The 25-year-old's silver coffin was flanked by flowers as family members and friends remembered Blasberg.

Blasberg was in her sixth season on the Ladies Professional Golf Association circuit. According to her family, she was planning to head to Mobile, Ala., for the qualifying round in the LGPA tour just days before she died.

The golfer won a half-dozen college tournaments in her two years at the University of Arizona in Tucson, which she left in her sophomore year to turn pro. In 2003, she was named Golfweek's "Player of the Year."

A private burial ceremony was held in Corona Del Mar Wednesday afternoon.
