When Miriam Marie “Mae-Mae” Burbank passed away at the age of 53 on June 1, her daughters were determined to give her a send-off as big as the life she lived.
Propped up at a living room-style table, fully embalmed, holding a menthol cigarette in one hand and a case of Busch beer at her side, Burbank’s “last party” was one for the books.
Her family told Charbonnet Funeral Home of New Orleans what they wanted and the end result was more than anyone could have anticipated. In addition to her nails being painted black and gold in honor of her beloved New Orleans Saints and a crossword puzzle sitting nearby, a disco ball spinning overhead completed the look.
