Shannon Denton July 12, 1953 - October 9, 2012 Shannon was born in Corona, California to Mary Scott. At a very young age, she was informally "adopted" by her step-father Frank Cronin. She kept the name Cronin until she was married. She grew up in Bakersfield attending Edison Elementary, Jr High, and Foothill High School. She worked many years at Lyle's College of Beauty. Everyone who knew her was touched by an Angel. Her whole life was centered around her 3 children: Mindi (Bill) Killman, Chrisama (Jeff) Stover, Richard (Kristy) Denton III, and 11 grandchildren that she dearly loved; Brittany V., Brittany S., Whitney, Daryn, Geoffrey, Kimberly, Kyle, Chase, Jacob, Hannah, and Eden; and one great-grandson Brayden. She is also survived by her mother Mary Scott, brother Kevin (Joy) Cronin, sister Karla (Jim) Sida, brother Travis (Chie) Homer, and sister Tracey (Paul) Lozano; her special Uncle Kenneth Wilkerson, and family friends Chuck Thomas and Carole Wilson, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and life long friends. She was selfless and loved her family and friends above and beyond in ways that no one could ever comprehend. She loved everyone unconditionally. She is now with Jesus and has her wings, so she can watch over all of them. Services to celebrate her life will be held at Greenlawn Southwest at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, October 15, 2012. www.bakersfield.com/obits
