Ann Turner Cook, higher referred to as the unique Gerber child, has died at 95, Gerber Products Company stated on Instagram.

“Gerber is deeply saddened by the passing of Ann Turner Cook, the unique Gerber child, whose face was sketched to turn out to be the enduring Gerber emblem greater than 90 years in the past,” the corporate wrote within the Friday put up.

“Many years earlier than changing into a rare mom, trainer and author, her smile and expressive curiosity captured hearts in all places and can proceed to dwell on as a logo for all infants,” Gerber stated.

Cook was 5 months outdated when artist Dorothy Hope Smith sketched her cherubic child face in a charcoal drawing that was later submitted to a contest Gerber was holding for a nationwide advertising marketing campaign for child meals.
