With the passing of Margaret Pelligrini, who played one of the Munchkins in the 1939 film classic “The Wizardof Oz,” there are only two surviving Munchkins, Ruth Duccini and Jerry Maren.

This timeless film classic is as much “America” as baseball or apple pie. It has brought much joy and happiness to millions of people since it was released in 1939.

Pelligrini has come to the end of the “yellow brick road.” Rest in peace!
