Angela Woosley is the owner of Inspired Journeys, the Midwest’s first woman-owned and family-centered natural death care provider. In addition to her celebrant services, she also offers end-of-life doula services, home funeral education, and public speaking/community education. Through personalized consultation, partnership, and expert guidance from caring professionals, Inspired Journeys is here to serve you.


Angela Woosley is a MN-licensed mortician who also taught in the Program of Mortuary Science at the University of Minnesota for over 10 years. She became a certified celebrant in 2017 through the Insight Institute, and in 2019 she trained as an end-of-life doula with the International End-of-Life Doula Association (INELDA.) A passionate educator, Angela has presented locally and nationally over the years on topics such as the art of obituaries, self-care, young adult grief, and grief in family systems.


Inspired Journeys can help you plan for the perfect service to remember and memorialize the guest of honor. The sky is the limit with celebrations of life! You know what funerals have been. But can you imagine what they could be?

  • An informal gathering at the corner bar
  • Bingo night, or even a meat raffle
  • Wine and hors d’oeuvres at a favorite art gallery
  • A garden party at an arboretum
  • An all-out, black tie gala


The Life Celebration Service includes meeting with your family for a full planning session, that may take from 1 to 3 hours. The schedule is up to you. There is no preplanned service outline–we are truly crafting the event you want together, from the ground up.


After this meeting, Angela will research and assemble the perfect readings, songs, and interactive elements that are right for the occasion, and officiate the service at the time and place of your choice.
