After 1934 when Judy went solo, does anyone know what happened to her two sisters?

Also are there any conventions coming up in the Uk in the near future? Thank you.

Hi. JG's oldest sister married bandleader Jack Cathcart. She died in the early 1960's from cancer. Judy's other sister married Bobby Sherwood. They had a daughter, Judalein (died late 1980's). Judy's second sister died in the 1980's. Check the London based Judy Garland Club for more info on Meetings.

On page 475 of David Shipman's book "Judy Garland The Secret Life of an American Legend, Shipman writes that Judy's oldest sister Suzy died from a overdose of drugs in Las Vegas on May 26 1964, but it was reported she died of cancer.

David Shipman's tome about the life of Judy Garland is actually considered one of the worst of the Garland biographies. Filled with fabrications and supposition. For a more reliable read, check out John Fricke's "Judy Garland: World's Greatest Entertainer".

The best book out there on Miss Garland is called Get Happy by Gerald Clarke...it is a must read for any Garland fan. Lots of candid details.

Many of the "candid details" in Get Happy are pure fiction. I would take anything Gerlad Clarke has to say about Judy with more than a few grains of salt.

Judy's sisters were Mary Jane and Virginia. They changes their names to Suzanne and Jimmie, respectively. Jimmie worked for a time at MGM where her job was remembering how the set should look when there were breaks in shooting. Her daughter, Judallein, was names after Arthur Freed's nickname for Judy. I don't think any went by the name Alice and painted.
