Trivia (7)

Middle sister of actress Judy Garland and Mary Jane Gumm.

Aunt of Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft and Joey Luft.

Virginia had a daughter, Judaline Gail "Judy" Sherwood, with her husband, musician Bobby Sherwood. Judaline means "little Judy" in Jewish and was originally an endearing nickname given to Virginia's sister Judy Garland (born Frances Ethel Gumm) by one of her directors when she was a child. The name was subsequently used by the family to differentiate between "Big Judy" and "Little Judy". Judaline loved the name so much she had it made legal when she grew up. She was born on May 28, 1938 and was named after her aunt.

Great aunt of Jesse Hooker and Vanessa Hooker.

Daughter Judy died on July 19, 1985, at the age of 47.

In the 1970s, she reunited with her niece Lorna Luft.

Ex-sister-in-law of David Rose, Vincente Minnelli and Sidney Luft.
