NEW ORLEANS — With a case of Busch beer by her side, a menthol cigarette in her hand, and a disco ball flashing overhead, Miriam Burbank attended her last party.

According to WGNO, Burbank’s two daughters, who call their mom Mae Mae, said she was full of life and they wanted her funeral to reflect that.

So they told the funeral home directors at Charbonnet Funeral Home what she liked and came up with this.

Aside from the beer and menthol cigarette, Burbank is sitting at a table in a living room type setting. Also the Saints lover has her fingernails painted black and gold.

Burbank’s daughters said other family members seemed to enjoy this fitting goodbye.

Burbank is not the first New Orleanian to have an unusual send-off. In April, philanthropist and socialite Mickey Easterling causally sat on an iron bench and greeted guests with champagne and a magnificent hat.
