BENTALL, Dr. Shirley Franklyn (née MAY)
Passed away on March 4, 2005 at home surrounded by her loving family and the strong presence of God, into whose embrace she has been enfolded. Much beloved and precious wife of Dr. Charles Howard BENTALL; loving mother of Louise, Kathi, Joan (Rick) and Barney (Kath); and devoted 'Grammy' to Carly, Erin, Jeff, Tim, Brad, Amy, Becky, Tara, Lucas, Tasha, Cody, Jess, Dustin and Sacha and their significant others. Shirley was born in Regina on July 28, 1926, She received a B.A. from McMaster University, which also awarded her an honorary Doctorate of Divinity in 1989. When she married Howard in 1946 at the age of 20, she became a pastor's wife for the congregation of Walmer Road Baptist Church in Toronto. Over the years, first in Toronto and then in Calgary at First Baptist Church, she took a prominent role in leading and advancing the role of women in the church. She became the first woman president of the Baptist Union of Western Canada (1976-77) and then of the Canadian Baptist Federation (1985-88). She travelled extensively as a member of the Council of the Baptist World Alliance from 1985-95, for which she chaired the Christian Ethics Commission and also served on the Human Rights Commission. She also wrote a regular column for The Canadian Baptist magazine and several books, including Discovering the Deep Places and a biography of her father-in-law, The Charles Bentall Story. She had a lifelong commitment to serving others. She and Howard moved to the West Coast in 1992 where, rather than retiring to a life of ease, she worked tirelessly to bring her vision of spiritual renewal and community to fruition through the creation of the Rivendell Retreat Centre on Bowen Island and the Salsbury Community Society. The latter oversees five houses in East Vancouver with the purpose of building communities that are characterized by diversity and provide support for resident refugee claimants. She was deeply devoted and connected to Grandview Calvary Baptist (1803 East 1st Avenue), where her memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 12th at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Salsbury Community Society, 1824 Venables Street, Vancouver, V5L 2H7.

'Eco-hero' HUNTER dead at 63
Seminal figure in global environmental movement
Respected author of 13 books had long career in television news
By Joseph HALL, Staff Reporter
The ice was cracking as the sealing boat bore down on Bob HUNTER and the cold green sea was bubbling up around his feet.
"I said, okay, when this ice goes, you jump to the right and I'll jump to the left," his friend and fellow environmental activist Paul WATSON recalls of that David and Goliath confrontation he shared with HUNTER off the Labrador coast back in 1976.
"But Bob said ' I'm not going anywhere.' And the damned boat stopped."
HUNTER, the Greenpeace co-founder who came into countless Toronto living rooms in his housecoat as a quirky commentator on Citytv's Breakfast Television, died yesterday after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 63.
Described by Friends and colleagues as a congenial, funny, kind and fiercely brave rebel, HUNTER was a seminal figure in the global environmental movement. His Greenpeace work in the 1970s and 1980s helped achieve moratoriums on whaling and the Newfoundland seal hunt (since lifted) and a ban on nuclear testing in the Pacific.
It also ushered in a general global concern for the environment that had been largely absent before he and his "eco-warrior" comrades took the stage.
HUNTER was Citytv's environment reporter for 15 years, and also was also a founding contributor to the Toronto weekly eye and the author of 13 books.
Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, October 13, 1941, HUNTER became "a child of the '60s" and dropped out of school for a career in writing.
He ended up at The Vancouver Sun, ultimately becoming the country's first counter-culture columnist before sailing aboard the Phyllis Cormack in late 1971 to demonstrate against U.S. nuclear tests on Amchitka Island off the coast of Alaska.
That trip precipitated the formation of the group that would become Greenpeace. He was the organization's original president and chairman and held the first membership card.
In the mid-'70s as the organization's president he didn't hesitate to take on those he deemed irresponsible.
In 1976, he took Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to task for Canada's continuing export of nuclear technology to developing countries. He called the leader "one of the greatest living threats to the survival of the planet."
But by 1982 he had returned to his first love as a writer for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's The Beachcombers series and as a columnist for The North Shore News in Vancouver
"I was the right person in the right place," said HUNTER of his pivotal role in Greenpeace's dissident activities to halt the slaughter of whales.
"But when it's done, I think you can get into a habit of just clinging to it because you don't know what to do next, whereas I knew all along I wanted to get back to what I was doing already."
WATSON, however, says HUNTER's role in the success of Greenpeace cannot be overstated.
"There are a lot of us who could be called (Greenpeace) co-founders, but I would describe Bob as the founding father," he says.
"He was the one who picked it up when it was faltering in the early 1970s and made it what it is today. If not for Bob HUNTER, there would not be a Greenpeace Foundation today."
"Bob was one of a critical mass of environmental people with a media focus," says long-time friend Dan McDERMOTT, director of the Sierra Club of Canada's Ontario chapter.
"He had the vision to look across cultures and to use the media to move the message."
Confrontational stunts at sea became his Greenpeace trademark even as they literally put HUNTER's life on the line.
Indeed, many say it was the televised image of a harpoon flying over WATSON's head and into a whale he was trying to protect in the mid-'70s that brought environmentalism into the public eye.
Premier Dalton McGUINTY paid tribute to HUNTER, who ran for the Liberals in a 2001 by-election, finishing second to New Democrat Michael PRUE.
"Ontario and Canada have lost a very important citizen. Bob HUNTER was larger than life," McGUINTY said yesterday.
"Some people talk about saving the world. Bob HUNTER devoted his life to saving the world," he said.
In 2000, HUNTER was named one of Time magazine's eco-heroes of the century.
HUNTER died surrounded by his wife, Bobbi and his children Will, Emily, Conan and Justine, according to Citytv.
A memorial service will be announced shortly.
