Fanny Augusta Konstantia Tjäder
Born 9th September, 1884 in Nacka
Died 21st January, 1960 in Stockholm



Fanny as a teenager.

Fanny, my grandmother, had two sons, Oskar and Valentin. The father to both sons stayed unknown to all but herself as long as she lived. She simply refused to give his name, no matter how much the family pressed her about it. She worked all her life until the age of 70 as a seamstress (if I remember correctly).

She lived with my parents and me until I was about 12 years old when she moved to her sister Edits' flat.
