Elin Dorotea Karlsson was born in Lyse, Sweden on 21 April 1900 as the daughter of August and Anna Maria Johansson Karlsson. Elin Karlsson never married and primarily worked as a nanny until her retirement.
Due to the unusual occurrence of there being two living supercentenarians in Sweden at the time, Elin Karlsson never became the oldest living person in Sweden, this title was instead held by Maria Eriksson (1900-2011) who was less than one month older than Elin.
Elin Karlsson passed away on 27 September 2010 at the age of 110 years, 159 days.
