Ruby was born June 1, 1923, in London, England. She danced with the London Academy of Ballet. Her family moved from England to Toronto, Canada, and Ruby continued dancing on stage.  She worked as a professional model in Canada, and she also won the title of Miss Toronto. Ruby married and had two sons in Toronto.  Her husband’s insurance business moved the family to California, and Ruby had two more children–two daughters.  After her children were in school, she opened Ruby Lawton’s Classical School of Dance.  Ruby’s students were trained in ballet, tap, and modern dance.  Then at the age of 50, Ruby became a real estate broker and had a successful career in real estate, working until she was 75. Now at the young age of 97 Ruby still stays active dancing and participating in Townehouse activities.
