Ann Turner Cook, the face on Gerber baby products for generations, dies at 95

by | Jun 6, 2022

Ann Turner Cook, the original Gerber Baby whose familiar face has been printed on thousands of products over generations, has died, the company announced on Instagram. She was 95.

“Many years before becoming an extraordinary mother, teacher and writer, her smile and expressive curiosity captured hearts everywhere and will continue to live on as a symbol for all babies,” Gerber said in a statement posted online.
A sketch of Cook’s baby face has been the iconic Gerber logo for more than 90 years, states CNN.
It all started with a contest that the company held to find a face for a baby food advertising campaign, according to the Gerber website.
Dorothy Hope Smith, a neighbor of Cook’s family, turned in a charcoal sketch she had drawn of Cook and said she would finish it if she won, according to the site.
