You're thinking of Julie Madison, aren't you? She got the whole Princess Grace retcon, I know, and was Bruce's fiancee in the early Batman tales. She got a different send-off in the post-CRISIS retelling we just saw in Batman vs. The Mad Monk.

He is thinking of Julie Madison. Bruce Wayne did indeed date Linda Page though. When the U.S. entered the War in 1941 she became a nurse.
