Every Sunday was a family dinner time with their grandparents who stayed at Dorchester (later at Milton) and who owned a mom-and-pop convenience store there. Recalling her grandparents, Maria had commented:
“My grandparents worked so hard. That’s how I learned to be a reporter. I saw them interact with customers. Someone would come in for a candy bar and they would be talking about politics, their lives.”

She attended Bagnall Elementary School in Groveland and later graduated from Pentucket Regional High School in West Newbury, Ma.
