If you know the user's list password, you can send the command

unsubscribe users_password address=user at example.com

to the list-request address. That's the only way. The list admin
password won't work, you need to provide the user's list password, and
without the user's password, you can't unsubscribe her without her
getting and responding to a confirmation.
