My father recently passed away and kept a beautiful garden of all types of herbs. We would like to continue to take care of the garden but need some advice. The herbs include: Thyme, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, Rosemary, and Maria Louise. The herbs are planted in the ground and we live in Vancouver, BC, Canada where we get a lot of rain and our winters are pretty mild. It is now March and nothing was done to the herbs since last fall. Should we cut the herbs back? Should we fertilize?

I am sorry to hear about your father. Fortunately, herbs are pretty care free once established, as long as you harvest them regularly.
These articles will help you with their care:
I would give them a little nitrogen rich fertilizer in the spring (not much or it ruins the flavor), and they should be fine after that.
