sadly, after today there is only ONE MUNCHKIN left in this world…..everybody knows that by far my favorite movie of all time is “THE WIZARD OF OZ.” So, i have spent a long time watching the movie and catching up on where the actors are….well, as you would expect, most of them have gone on to meet their maker…..

add to that list, another one….

RUTH ROBINSON DUCCINI died today at the age of 95….she was born in MINNESOTA, and was the last surviving FEMALE MUNCHKIN…


"Wizard of Oz" With Last Remaining Munchkins

and now, with RUTH’S passing, that leaves only JERRY MAREN left….JERRY is now 93 years old……here he is recently….



The way I look at it is this…..”THE WIZARD OF OZ” was released in 1939……the fact that ANY of the cast is still around is pretty amazing………
