One of the two last surviving Munchkins from The Wizard Of Oz has died.

Actress Ruth Duccini passed away of natural causes on Thursday at the age of 95. She had been staying at a hospice in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to TMZ.com.

Duccini was one of 124 little people who starred in the film and was the last surviving female, but she wasn't credited for her role on screen.

Back in August Margaret Pellegrini, who played the Flowerpot Munchkin in the 1939 film, died of complications from a stroke.

Duccini and Pellegrini's deaths leave just one surviving Munchkin from the film, Jerry Maren, 93:
