Mme. Léontine Pauline Aubart (known as "Ninette"), 24, was born in Paris on 20 May 1887.

A Singer, she lived at 17 Rue Le Sueur, Paris, France. She boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg with her maid Emma Sägesser . She occupied cabin B-35 (ticket number PC 17477, £69 6s). Mme. Aubart (often misspelled Aubert) was the mistress of millionaire Benjamin Guggenheim who was also aboard. She and her maid were rescued, probably in lifeboat 9 .

After coming aboard the Carpathia she sent a Marconigram to Paris on 18 April 1912:

Some other Telegrams were not transmitted because the operators could not cope with the tremendous workload following the disaster.
