Mary Ellen Picard, age 80, of Superior, Wisc. passed away on January 30, 2021. Mary was born January 31, 1941 in Bemidji, MN., the daughter of Dr. Charles and Gene Picard. Mary grew up in Superior and then started her professional career in the Milwaukee area by becoming an LPN. In 1979 she was called home to give nursing care to her mother and ultimately to her father. Along the way she gave so much help to hundreds of people in the Superior area.

Preceding Mary in death are her parents and brother, John of Las Vegan, Nevada.

Surviving are her sister, Sylvia Murphy (Larry) of DePere, WI; brothers, Charles Picard (Carol) of Crookston, MN and Albert Picard (Lisa) of Superior, WI; sister-in-law, Cora Picard; and very special friend, Sharon Shuck.
