Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - One of the last surviving munchkins from The Wizard of Oz has passed away.

Margaret Pellegrini played the flower-pot munchkin and one of the 'sleepy head kids' in the 1939 classic.

Margaret frequently came through the Central New York area to visit for the Oz-Stravaganza Festival in Chittenango.

She also stopped by Bridge Street back in 2009.

Margaret, who was living in Arizona, was 89-years-old.

Her death leaves just two surviving munchkins from film, including 93-year-old Jerry Maren, a lollipop kid, and 95-year-old Ruth Duccini.
