      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.
