Ray Bolger, Judy Garland, Jack Haley, and Bert Lahr dance along the yellow brick road in publicity from the film, ‘The Wizard of Oz’, in 1939. Judy Garland’s outlast moved across the whole country to a memorial intended as the resting place for daughters Liza Minnelli and Lorna Luft and of other family members. The shift from a crypt in New York’s Ferncliff Cemetery to Hollywood Forever Cemetery completed last Friday. Noelle Berman, a Hollywood Forever spokeswoman, told The Associated Press.

“The move to Hollywood made after several years of family conferences and deliberations,” Berman responded on Monday. “Ms Garland’s three children now remain in Southern California and wished to have their mother relaxing beside them.” The space in the mausoleum has re-named as the Judy Garland Pavilion. The place has room for all her family including the famed actress and singer’s son, her daughters, Joey Luft, and her grandchildren. Berman stated all this in an interview. The move reflects the determination of an issue including Garland’s fifth husband, according to Victoria Varela, a family spokeswoman.
“Since Judy Garland died, her interests were established by her husband, Mickey Deans. Her children had no authority in the subject of her burial. So this is, at least, their chance to do what they feel about their mother. The first thing on the place she wanted is to combine with her family in Hollywood,” Varela declared in a statement.
Judy Garland, the star of classic movies including ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Meet Me in St. Louis’, died on 22 June 1969 at the age of 47 in the London. Deans died in 2003.
While her other spouses included filmmaker Vincent Minnelli, father of Oscar-winning Cabaret star Liza, 70, and producer Sidney Luft, father to actress and singer Lorna, 64, and Joey, 61.
