Deceased siblings

Curious, my D has two deceased siblings. On the common app where it asks if you have any sibs it’s tough to NOT put anything. Anyone have any experience with this?

    You can put them if you want. On a financial aid app, it may be to figure out family size, but on the application to the school, I think it is to get to know the student. If the sibling were part of her life, and you want to portray that, list them.
