Not sure....Jerry Maren was credited as one of the adult munchkins. I believe there may have been some child munchkins. The movie came out in 1939, 79 years ago, so it's only natural that a lot of the cast members have gone to the big Emerald City in the sky.
edit:Here's a 2 year-old website that lists the surviving cast members as of May, 2016.
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls061321507/
Child munchkins (uncredited), seen in the background of the movie, that as of today are still alive, are Ambrose Schindler, Valerie Lee, Betty Ann Bruno, Ardith Dondanville, Joan Kenmore, and Priscilla Montgomery.

I'd seen several posts about it on Facebook like it was current. Sometimes it takes awhile for deaths to become public.

Sure, Facebook can post fake stuff or wrong dates.. but even the article you linked says it was published Nov 2017. Ohs well.
