According to IBNA correspondent, Daihimi died of respiratory disease. Her funeral ceremony was attended by several Iranian literati, artists, political activists and others such as Ahmad Pouri (writer and translator) Manijeh Hekmat (film producer and director), Bahram Davari (graphic designer) and Mostafa Tajzadeh (reformist politician).

She was the daughter of celebrated Iranian translator of philosophy and author Khashayar Daihimi who could not attend the funeral ceremony due to severe depression and grief. Her mother, Roya Rezvani is also a translator and publisher.

Born in 1988 in Tehran, Nazanin Daihimi studied theater at The University of Tehran. As a teen, she began to learn translation from her father and later proved her talent in this career which was initiated in the field of children books. Nazanin translated works from the celebrated English language writers and playwrights such as Barbara Park, Tom Stoppard and Lucy Kirkwood to Persian.

Nazanin was among those people who protested against Iran’s presidential election of 2009 which reinstated Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as she spent four months in prison later in 2012 where she directed a play performed by other female inmates.
