Maria Gudelia Segovia Cepeda, 80, passed into the arms of her Heavenly Father on 02/20/2024; she passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones.  She was born on September 29, 1943, in Monterrey, Mexico to Dionisio Segovia and Felicitas Rangel.

Maria's journey through life included a lasting companionship with her late husband, Jose Lara Cepeda; they married in 1965 and were blessed with 10 children together.  Despite facing many challenges, she consistently maintained a positive perspective.  She devoted her life to lifting up others with her astute advice, her words of love, hope and above all, peace.  Maria had the ability to discern what truly mattered in life, prioritizing her connection with God, her faith, her husband, children, grandchildren and a multitude of friends. She was a remarkable woman of strength and resilience-a true warrior.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Jose L. Cepeda and her daughter, Martha Nellie Rios.  She is lovingly survived by her children Raul, Ruben, Migdalia (Dalia), Gudelia (Delia), Jose, Jorge, Oscar, Teresa and Omner, numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and extended family.  Her kindness and compassion touched countless hearts, and her legacy will forever be cherished by those who knew and loved her. 

A visitation will be held on Thursday, February 29, 2024, at 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  Funeral Service on Friday, March 1, 2024, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, followed by a graveside service at Woodlawn Cemetery.

May she rest in eternal peace.
