Maria Little-Cedillos, 73, went to be with the Lord on December 13, 2020. She was born July 27, 1947 in Culiacán, Sinaloa (Mexico) to Guadalupe Félix Vega and Teresa Guerrero Araujo.
She is survived by her husband, Jose Rodolfo "Rudy" Cedillos; sons Robert Little Jr. (Adrien) and Michael Little (Michelle); step-daughter Belinda Little Schauer; mother, sister Mirta Félix (both of Culiacán) and brother Jose Guadalupe Felix Guerrero (of Pueblo Yaqui); and her cherished granddaughter Adeline. Her father and her beloved son Carlos Félix Little preceded her in death.
In 1973, Maria and Carlos moved to Las Vegas, NV where she began her career in the casino business at Circus Circus and MGM. In 1979, she moved to Atlantic City, NJ where she made numerous friends at Resorts Int'l and Caesars AC. Again, in 1989, she returned to Las Vegas and eventually retired in 2014 from Caesars Palace as a high roller table games supervisor. Her career was more than a job, it was a place she made hundreds feel special!
Maria was a kind and generous soul. She had a joy for life, and everyone enjoyed being around her. She is described as a beautiful, classy lady who would light up any room. Her biggest joy, outside of being a mom, was being Nana/Abuela to Adeline and they spent many hours a week together. With Adeline, she shared her affection of gardening, cooking, singing, dancing, playing and shopping.
