My mother passed away and she lived in Maryland and I live in NC can I be the executor of this estate?

You may wish to visit the Estate Planning Center and read Choosing the Executor FAQ as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter. I also suggest you consult with a local Probate & Estate Administration Lawyer for clarification.
FindLaw's Legal Heads-Up! newsletter can provide you with the legal resources you need to make informed decisions when law touches aspects of your everyday life.

Yes, although you will have to appoint a resident to accept service on your behalf. The smart thing to do would be to retain counsel in the area where your mother lived and where the administration of her estate will take place.
