Obituary for Astrid Ann Inabinet

June 2, 1967 - July 11, 2021
Woodbridge, Virginia | Age 54


Astrid Ann Inabinet was born on June 2, 1967. Her parents, Ruth Howell Baxter and Edward Howell loved her to life until her transition July 11, 2021, at 54.

Astrid accepted Christ at the age of nine and loved the Lord with all her heart, mind, and soul. She was an active member of Dale City Christian Church under the pastorate of Bishop Carl E. Jenkins and currently Bishop Patrick O. Thomas. Due to the pandemic, Astrid became unable to attend church in person, which she sorely missed, but she regularly attended worship services virtually. Active in service for the Lord, Astrid served on various ministries: the choir, Missionaries, Hospitality Ministry, and supported all other ministries in the church. In March 2018, Astrid was the recipient of the Dale City Multicultural Scholarship Faithfulness Award.

Astrid was a graduate of Duke Ellington School of the Arts and matriculated to the University of the District of Columbia in 2001, earning her bachelor's degree in Education with a specialization in music. She spent the majority of her working life as an educator, teaching music at elementary grade levels. She also worked as a private tutor for voice and piano lessons. Astrid was passionate about organizing school musical productions. Astrid retired on medical disability.

Astrid was a member of the National Council of Negro Women and the Dale City Civic Association. She was also a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, joining Kappa Alpha Chapter in 1991. As a member of the Kappa Alpha Chapter, Astrid served as the chapter president. She later joined her undergraduate chapter's sponsoring chapter Beta Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated.

Astrid was active in coordinating fashion shows for Jewels of Ann School. She was introduced to the Atikal Foundation and had the opportunity to be featured in the 10th-anniversary edition of the Raw Beauty calendar, where she shared some of her life experiences. She believed in the principles of the foundation and became an ambassador for the calendar initiative.

Astrid loved to travel and took many family trips traveling around the world. She recently got a cat that she immediately fell in love with and named her "Girlfriend." Astrid's greatest accomplishment was giving birth to her daughter, MarQuetta. Her second greatest accomplishment was marrying the love of her life, her late husband Marcus Lavert Ross Inabinet. While only being married for seven months before his unexpected transition, they loved each other for more than 20 years.

Astrid leaves to mourn one daughter, MarQuetta Marchelle Inabinet, her parents, Dr. Ruth Howell Baxter (Deacon Edward), three sisters, Deaconess Mova Chambers (Jason); Mava Lewis, Josephine Brown (Darrell); one brother, Robert, her aunt, Cora (Hank), cousin Joy, mother-in-law, Margol Inabinet, nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends.

She was loved and will be missed by many.
