Daugh­ter of Stan Lau­rel dies

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS -

Lois Lau­rel Hawes, the daugh­ter of co­me­dian Stan Lau­rel, has died aged 89.

Hawes died late on Fri­day night at a Los An­ge­les hos­pi­tal af­ter a long ill­ness, her fam­ily said.

Her mother was Lau­rel’s first wife, Lois Neil­son. Lau­rel and screen part­ner Oliver Hardy had decades of suc­cess.

Lau­rel played the dim-wit­ted side­kick to the pompous Hardy.

Hawes, pic­tured right as a child with her fa­ther, made un­cred­ited ap­pear­ances in sev­eral of their pro­duc­tions.

She was mar­ried to Gone With The Wind ac­tor Rand Brooks and later to ac­tor Tony Hawes.
