SHEEHAN, BESS MAY VROOMAN (MRS. FRANK J.): ?-1968.

A resident of Gary, Ind., since the early 1900, Bess May Vrooman lived there most of her life. She married Frank J. Sheehan. She was often called "The Dunes Lady" because of her work in helping preserve the Porter County dunes which became Indiana Dunes Park in 1923. Mrs. Sheehan was president of the Indiana Federation of Clubs, 1925-27, and compiled a forty-year history of the association. She was one of a nine-member committee appointed by the governor in 1929 to make plans for the present Indiana State Library building. She died in Florida in 1968.
