"the Actress and the designer Agneta Eckemyr is dead, after several years of living with Alzheimer's disease."
"I regret that she had to go away in such a young age, it is very disappointing," says former life partner Staffan Scheja to Nöjesbladet."
"the Actor, fashion photographer and designer Agneta Eckemyr has died. She suffered from alzheimer's disease, which was discovered in 2012."
"Agneta was previously together with pianist Staffan Scheja. Together they have son Daniel Scheja."
"When Nöjesbladet reaches Staffan Scheja, 68, is he short."
" I regret that she had to go away in such a young age, it is very boring. She was very ill last time."
"Agneta Eckemyr played in the 70's against the likes of Sven-Bertil Taube and Tommy Berggren. As late as 2010, she appeared on Tv8's series ”Skärgårdsön”."
"Sven-Bertil Taube, 84, remembers her with warmth."
"– A happy, nice and beautiful girl who I had the pleasure to shoot with. Very generous and hospitable when I on several occasions visited her in New York, " he says to Nöjesbladet."
"Tommy Berggren, 81, was reached by the dödsbeskedet a few hours before it became public. He has only good things to say about his former colleague and very close friend. He played against her in the films ”Broken sky” and ”kristoffer's house” where they played lovers."
" I knew David very well and we were very close and celebrated several christmases together. Also, I'm very good friends with Staffan Scheja. I lived much of Agneta when I was in New York city. We had jättefester with, among others, Robert de Niro and Al Pacino in her apartment. But it was in the beginning of their careers, " says Tommy to Nöjesbladet."
" And which filmpar I and Agneta was in ”kristoffer's house”! She was really irresistible and difficult to tear your eyes from. There was some kind of Marilyn Monroe-shimmering over her. There is no other Swedish who have had just the sort of shimmer and special charisma. But many people, especially girls, were annoyed enough at her because she was so freaking neat. And as Agneta also folded out in Playboy, there were many who only saw her as a sex symbol, a femme fatale. But I saw her as a human being and took her always in the defense."
"– We always had fun together. I thought so much about Agneta and I will miss her very much. "
"Agneta lived in New York for 44 years where she for several years operated his company Agneta Eckemyr Design that made the clothes in the classic Swedish romantic style with lots of lace and bondromantik. She was forced to move home to Sweden in 2014 and spent his last years in a nursing - and care homes."
"Over a period of time in the 80's drove Agneta also klädesbutiken the Darling of New York with her writer friend Vivianne Twin, 68. She describes her friend in an e-mail to TT:"
"”A trailblazer and a very kind soul” who ”will be missed by family, friends, clients and acquaintances”."
"Nöjesbladet has also been in contact with Yvonne Karlén, who was one of Agneta, the best of friends."
"– We met 50 years ago and had anniversary this year. She was an incredibly positive person. Agneta became almost like an unofficial ambassador for the swedes who came to New York over the years. There was always a sofa to sleep on. She introduced me to so many wonderful people, " says Yvonne."
"– Of all the women enough, she meant the absolute most to me. Agneta had the biggest heart. I sat with her and held her hand when she passed away. The time was 11.20, but I was not sure that she had died. She took one last breath. But it was very peaceful and quiet and she still had the nicest skin of all of us. But Alzheimer's disease is a anhörigsjukdom and it has been a living hell. When you go through everything ... What a nightmare, " says Yvonne Karlén."
"2014 was aired the documentary ”Penthouse north” about Agneta Eckemyrs life in New York city, and her difficult situation. She was threatened by eviction from their spacious apartment with views of Central park and her economy was anything but good. She is forced to, among other things, go to the socialhjälpen to get food stamps, something that was seen in the intrusive and straightforward documentary."
"In the end credits was to be read to Agneta affected by alzheimer's."
"Nöjesbladet have searched for son Daniel Scheja for a comment."
"Agneta Eckemyr was 68 years."
