Textile artist Marian Spadone helps to ease the pain for mourners with the beauty and creativity of handmade burial items. The Portland, Oregon woman creates beautiful burial and cremation shrouds through her business, A Fine Farewell. Her handmade shrouds are cost-effective, personalized and fully biodegradable.

The burial shroud adds elegance and creativity to the ritual of caring for the dead, which in turn help the living to grieve and heal from loss. 

Spadone is also a licensed minister and ceremonial facilitator who,"helps people create meaningful rituals that mark important passages in their lives."
