One of the last few surviving actors to portray Munchkin characters in the classic 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz” has died. Margaret Pellegrini, the Flowerpot Munchkin, had been a regular at the Wizard of Oz Festival in Chesterton, and was in the Region just last year for the Oz Fest. A spokesman told media outlets that she died Wednesday after suffering a stroke at her home outside Phoenix. Pellegrini was 89.
