What is wrong with her?! I would have told her that this was a time to celebrate your mother's life and mourn the loss of it, not a time for her to indulge in her alcoholism. And then broken up with her. But that being said, I hope she is providing some sort of support to you if you guys are still together. I'm very sorry for your loss, OP.
@ZombieSnowWhite: It may have more to deal with how the person died versus the death itself. If a perfectly healthy family member was killed by a serial killer who stabbed said family member repeatedly in a gruesome murder situation, you can bet almost no one will be happy to be at that wake, mainly because of how quickly the wake was scheduled and the suddenness of it all.
Either she's messed up in the head, or she has a really weird way of coping with sadness. Either way, it's still beyond fucked up.
I'm curious at to where she's from. In my part of the world (New Zealand and Australia), the actual funeral is a time for formality, sadness and mourning, and the wake is basically a massive party, alcohol included, as a celebration of the life of the deceased. I've never been to a funeral where that wasn't the case.
