Rachael “Shelly” Baxendale Inabnitt, 62, of Port Charlotte, Fla., died Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013.
She was born Feb. 16, 1951, in Springfield, Mass., to Irene Baxendale and Col. Thomas Baxendale.
Rachael and her family were the original owners of the Promenades Restaurant & Cabaret Lounge. She will be best remembered for opening the flea market in Murdock, Fla. Rachael excelled in many other aspects of her life, but most recently will be remembered for being a mother — not only to her own children, but to all children without exception.
Anyone who knew Rachael knows she nurtured dozens of children throughout her life, accepting and loving them unconditionally. She was a wonderful woman and mother.
Rachael is survived by her son, Steven; daughter, Jennifer; stepsons, Tony J. and Kevin; daughter-in-law, Brittney; grandchildren, Kaleb, Oliver and Carter; sister, June Baxendale; mother, Irene Baxendale; and husband, Tony Inabnitt.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, at Roberson Funeral Home in Port Charlotte. A celebration of Rachael’s life will be held at the Baxendale residence at 1493 Kolenda St., Port Charlotte, FL 33952, following the memorial service.
