Ruby Netzley at her last city council meeting in 2000.

  Ruby Netzley Passes July 2014, Age 90

Ruby moved to Dana Point in 1989 after a long career with Southern California Edison.  She purchased a view home in the new Village development and soon became president of her homeowners association.  In 1996 she was elected to the Dana Point City Council and her peers appointed her Mayor of Dana Point in 1999.  Her leadership style was decisive and direct. She was always true to herself.  We will all miss Ruby.
