New Orleans Socialiate Turns Memorial Service Into Party


New Orleans socialite Mickey Easterling always was the life of the party!

So it only made sense that when the 83-year-old passed away last month, her memorial service reflected her zest for life.

Instead of laying in a coffin, Mickey insisted on being propped up on a bench … and she held a drink and cigarette!

“She loved the limelight. She loved the attention,” her daughter, Nanci Myke Easterling, told the Times-Picayune. “She was flamboyant. She had flair. She was outrageous.”
