Mary Ann Archambault


Mary Ann “Pushka” Archambault, 87, passed away at home in Superior with her family by her side on Saturday. March 6, 2021. Mary Ann was born in Superior on November 23, 1933, to Andrew and Susan Liska.

She graduated from Superior Central High School and married her high school sweetheart, Whitney Archambault, Jr., in July of 1952. Mary Ann worked for over 40 years in the kitchen at the Elbow Room, a job she loved.

Mary Ann was kind, compassionate, selfless and giving. To know her was to love her. She held a very special place in her heart for her grandchildren and loved all of her family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents and husband of 61 years, Whitney.

Mary Ann is survived by her sons, Thomas (Gail) and Daniel; grandchildren Thomas, Jr., (Tiffany), David and Christi Archambault; great granddaughters Payton and Briana; special cousin, Mary Jo Lee and family; former daughter-in-law, Sue Sandvick; dear friend, Sally Paine; lifelong friend and neighbor, Carole Sigfrids, and her birthday club friends, Marjo, Annie and Judy.

The family would like to thank the staff at Essentia Hospice for making it possible for us to care for her at home.

At Mary Ann’s request, no services will be held. A private family graveside remembrance will be held at Calvary Cemetery in the spring.
