Maria earned an Associates of Nursing from Prince George’s Community College in 1996 and was a Registered Nurse. She volunteered several years at the school nursing office. She treated her patients with care and thoughtfulness. Maria enjoyed being active. From tap dancing, exercise classes at the gym, and martial arts, she was always moving.

Maria spent many years dancing in Spotlight recitals with her daughter, Stephanie. Maria was a fighter in everything she attempted. She lived life with every muscle of her body and heart. Her tenacious spirit bolstered those around her to work harder. Maria was active in her church in the children’s ministry and nursery. Maria loved vacationing with her family in Brigantine, New Jersey. She thrived on her traditions, one of which was baking Christmas cookies and birthday cakes as her way of expressing her gratitude to all her friends and family.

She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Daniel Harter; children Stephanie and Michael; mother Kathleen Ebling; brother Matthew Ebling, several cousins, and three nephews.
