Timander was a qualified dentist, who in her youth dreamed of being an actress, but became best known as a regular guest at Stockholm theatre premieres.
She died at her home in Stockholm after a short illness.
”She awoke early and sat up in her finest nightgown. It was entirely undramatic. She just sat there and passed away, exactly as she would have wished,” her son, Tomas Timander, told Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet.
