The star passed away from natural causes on 17 December (10) at a hospital in Pasadena, California.

Romay began her career in the early 1940s as the lead singer of the Xavier Cugat Orchestra and landed her big break after performing with the band in Fred Astaire's 1942 film You Were Never Lovelier.

The role led to Romay pursuing fame as an actress in numerous film and TV projects, including stints on the Milton Berle Show and the Red Skelton Show.

She bowed out of showbusiness in 1953, according to the Associated Press.
