Stan Lau­rel’s daugh­ter dies aged 89

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The daugh­ter of Ruther­glen star comic Stan Lau­rel has died in Los Angeles.

Lois Lau­rel Hawes passed away late on Fri­day night in hos­pi­tal after a long ill­ness, her fam­ily said. She was 89.

Lau­rel and his part­ner, Oliver Hardy, had decades of suc­cess. They wore trade­mark bowler hats and Lau­rel played the dim-wit­ted side­kick to the pompous Hardy.

He spent much of his youth living on Buchanan Drive and Stonelaw Road and at­tended Ruther­glen Acad­emy.

Hawes was mar­ried to Gone With The Wind ac­tor Rand Brooks and later to ac­tor Tony Hawes. She is sur­vived by a daugh­ter, five grand­chil­dren and nine great-grand­chil­dren.
