Stan Laurel’s daughter dies aged 89
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.
