This story takes “open casket” to the next level.
The family of Miriam Burbank knew she would never miss a party, so they made sure she was on the guest list for the blowout funeral celebration just prior to her own burial.
Propped up in a chair and surrounded by a few of her favorite things: Busch beer, menthol cigarettes, and a disco ball flashing overhead, the New Orleans native was the life of the party!
Burbank’s two daughters, who call their mom Mae Mae, said their late mother was a party girl and that they wanted a funeral that would make her proud.
And no party girl would attend a gathering without a perfect pedicure- Miriam had her nails painted black and gold as a shout out to her favorite team, The New Orleans Saints!
