PHOENIX -- There was some sad news Wednesday for fans of "The Wizard of Oz."

Margaret Pellegrini, one of the last surviving Munchkins, died in Phoenix after suffering a stroke.

She was 89 years old.

Pellegrini played one of the flowerpot Munchkins in the 1939 film.

Her death leaves just two surviving Munchkins. One of them is a lollipop kid who lives in Los Angeles, and the other is a former actress who lives in Phoenix.
