Funeral held for Louisiana’s first female senator

Hundreds of people turned out to say goodbye to a woman many considered the heart of a community.

Virginia Shehee was a very special woman because she was Louisiana’s first female state senator.

It was very clear what impact she had on others when the entire audience erupted into her famous saying “See you later alligator. After while crocodile.”

She died July 6th, just six days before her 92nd birthday.
