Miriam Burbank wanted an elaborate funeral so her family decided to set up a funeral the way she would have wanted it.

NEW ORLEANS (PIX11) – Two New Orleans women decided to give their mother the funeral she would have wanted.

Miriam Burbank — Mae Mae to her girls — sported dark shades and New Orleans Saints-themed nail polish, according to WGNO.  The Charbonet Funeral Home directors also made sure she had a case of Busch beer by her side and a menthol cigarette in hand — the things she would have enjoyed at a social gathering.

Burbank was seated at her own table below a disco ball — the guest of honor at her last party.
