Jerry Maren passed away at 98 years old in a San Diego nursing facility. If you're not familiar with the name, you will be familiar with the face. Jerry Maren showed Dorothy the path down the yellow brick road in the classic film "The Wizard Of Oz".
Yes, he played a munchkin in the 1939 film.
Out of the 124 munchkins in the film, Maren was the only one still alive from the film and boldly stated that on his Instagram bio. Maren was married to Elisabeth who also played a munchkin, but passed away in 2011. He leaves behind his nieces and nephews.
