Finwe near his wife Miriel Serinde by steamey Finwe near his wife Miriel Serinde by steamey
Despite Finwë's grief, and her unhappiness to abandon her young child, Míriel departed for the gardens of Lórien, to rest and regain her strength and vigour. But during her rest, the fëa departed from her body, and entered the Halls of Mandos leaving her body laying lifeless and still. Maidens of Estë took care of her body while her spirit remained in the Halls Of Mandos, so that it would not whither. In essence, she had died of free will.

I still wonder to this day what inspired her to pass to the Halls of Mandos...A thought that sparks is that perhaps she envisioned Feanor and the outcomes related to his consequences...Perhaps she knew she could not stop him even if she lived and thus her soul, her fea dearly grieved and could not live much more with the thought, the vision still existing...

According to one of the letters Tolkien wrote, she essentially committed suicide, and it was partly because of her suicide that Feanor turned out as he did.

That's heart breaking truthfully.

This is truly an interesting assumption! Maybe you're right. Although ... The book says that if she had not died, much of his fate would have been different. Not all, but ...

Very different I agree, his father would not have married Indis and Feanor's siblings would not have been born then...That including his granddaughter Lady Galadriel, her daughter Celebrian, and even Arwen Undomiel, future queen of Gondor.  The future of Middle Earth would have been very very different without them.

 A fitting illustration of a tragedy from which many others stemmed, however indirectly; the very image seems to seethe with disquiet.
