Jerry Maren Dies at 98

Post by Kitty » Wed Jun 06, 2018 5:56 pm

Jerry Maren was the last surviving Munchkin from The Wizard of Oz (1939). He was part of The Lollipop Guild. He is the one in green that hands the lollipop to Dorothy. He passed away in May, over a week ago.

Wow, the end of an era. Thanks for explaining which one he was.
RIP, Jerry.

Really sad to hear about this. Last living link to The Wizard of Oz, and I also enjoyed his work in some other things. He was a regular in one of my favorite shows from 1982, the short-lived comedy "No Soap, Radio."
