Maria was born in Channel, Newfoundland to Lavinia Marshall (Simms) and John R Marshall on September 19, 1931 and worked as a telephone operator. She met Ralph Mahar on the ferry from Halifax to Newfoundland and was married shortly after, in Port-Aux Basques, Newfoundland. They moved to Ontario then to North Vancouver, BC and finally to Halfmoon Bay, BC in 1974 and purchased the B&J Store, where they had a butcher shop and a post office. Maria loved meeting all the customers and had a huge soft spot for cats.
