Coleen Salley

September 17th, 2008 by Editor B

I just learned that Coleen Salley, the “Grocery Cart Queen,” passed away yesterday. I never met her, but I did encounter her (and her krewe) on Mardi Gras, 2007, and I took this picture, which I offer now as a tribute:

Krewe of Coleen

Rest in peace, Coleen.

    The guy in black looks like he’s some sort of bodyguard.

    “Sir, keep back from the Salley.”
