Roxie Kalashian was “an enthusiastic member of the Choral Society since its founding and who served 10 terms as its elected president,” Lachat wrote in an email.
“Music was always an important part of Roxie’s life and she formed a musical trio with her older sisters known as ‘The Rhythm Sisters’ which performed locally. Roxie was a true civic leader and well known for her tireless contributions to Newburyport,” she added.
