Ding dong ... one of the last remaining Munchkins from the "Wizard of Oz" movie has passed away.

Margaret Pellegrini reportedly died this morning around 7AM near her home in Phoenix, AZ after suffering a stroke. She was 89.

Standing at 3 ft. 4 inches, Pellegrini played multiple "Munchkin" parts in the movie, including a "sleepyhead" and a Munchkin villager.

Pellegrini was one of three surviving Munchkins from the 1939 classic film, leaving only two behind: 93-year-old Jerry Maren, and 95-year-old Ruth Duccini.
