Maria Elena "Lina" Romay (January 16, 1919 - December 17, 2010) was a Mexican-American actress and singer. She was born in 1919 in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Porfirio Romay, then-attache to the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles. She appeared in both photoreal and live-action form in the Droopy cartoon "Senor Droopy" (1949). Romay performed for a time with Xavier Cugat before eventually retiring. She was featured on Cugat Rumba Revue on NBC radio in the early 1940s. Along with Cugat and his orchestra, she appeared in the films You Were Never Lovelier (1942) and Bathing Beauty (1944). Prior to singing with Cugat, she had sung with Horace Heidt's orchestra, when she was billed as Josette, a Frenchwoman. She was married to John Lawrence Adams and later was the third wife of Jay Gould III (son of Jay Gould II), whom she married on 30 June 1953. Doña Romay died, at age 91, on December 17, 2010, from natural causes at a hospital in Pasadena, California, U.S. (Wikipedia)
