Judy Garland was laid to rest on Saturday, which would have been her 95th birthday, in a mausoleum named for her at Hollywood Forever Cemetery after her family brought her remains to California from New York.
According to The Asssociated Press, a spokeswoman for Garland's estate said her family and friends held a private memorial service. She was buried in the Judy Garland Pavilion.
Garland's children, Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft and Joe Luft, wanted to bring their mother's remains "home to Hollywood" from her original burial site at New York's Ferncliff Cemetery, publicist Victoria Varela said. They attended the service, along with Garland's grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
In a statement released to the AP, they offered gratitude to their mother's "millions of fans around the world for their constant love and support."
Garland's children announced earlier this year that they had relocated their mother's remains to Los Angeles. Garland's third husband, Mickey Deans, buried her in New York, but her children said she wished to be interred with her family in Hollywood, Varela said.
The Judy Garland Pavilion is intended as a final resting spot for Minnelli, Luft and other family members, cemetery spokeswoman Noelle Berman said in January.
Garland, star of classic films including "The Wizard of Oz" and "Meet Me in St. Louis," died in 1969 at age 47 in London.
Jayne Mansfield, Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino and Cecil B. DeMille are among the entertainment luminaries buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Rocker Chris Cornell was laid to rest there last month.
