      New Orleans woman propped up at her very unusual funeral

      The family of 53-year-old Miriam Burbank said she loved a cold beer, an occasional scotch and the New Orleans saints.


      A New Orleans woman remembered as a "party girl" received a sendoff that captured her zest for life.


      The family of 53-year-old Miriam Burbank said she loved a cold beer, an occasional scotch and the New Orleans saints.


      So, a funeral home found a way to combine all of that in her wake.


      You can see Burbank is propped up at a table with a cigarette in her hand, a glass of beer, and disco lights. Her fingernails are even painted black and gold, the colors of the New Orleans Saints.


      There's no word on how Burbank died.
