Gerber foods posted the following statement today, June 3, 2022 on their webpage.

“Gerber is deeply saddened by the passing of Ann Turner Cook, the original Gerber baby, whose face was sketched to become the iconic Gerber logo more than 90 years ago.

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. We extend our deepest sympathies to Ann’s family and to anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her 💙”

We at OCSN are saddened to hear of the iconic Gerber Baby’s passing as well and extend our deepest condolences to her friends and family.
