Judy Garland’s Remains Moved To Los Angeles
Judy Garland’s remains have been moved from New York to Los Angeles.
Liza Minelli, the actress’ daughter, requested the move. The reason was that there wasn’t enough space at the cemetery in New York for her children — Minnelli, 70, Lorna Luft, 64, and Joey Luft, 61 – to be buried next to her.
Minnelli, who was a longtime New York resident, moved to Los Angeles permanently two years ago. Lorna and Joey also reside there.
Garland’s remains will be moved to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in LA. The cemetery holds a many other famous celebs included Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Mickey Rooney and George Harrison.
Garland has been moved to Beth Olam Cemetery, the Jewish section of the cemetery. Two of Garland’s husbands were Jewish – David Rose and Sidney Luft. She herself never converted from her Episcopalian origins.
