Tillie Rosenbaum was born to Pincus and Mary Rosenbaum in Austria Poland. In the early 20th century she emigrated to the United States and married Benjamin Flashenberg. The couple first made the Lower East Side of Manhattan their home. They then moved with their children to the Yorkville section of the city around 1919-1920, and from there to Brooklyn, N.Y.

Sybil Arens (parents: Belle and Dave Arens)
Joan, Marilyn, Jack Donald and Karen Kennedy (parents: Isidore/Irving and Dorothy Kennedy*)
Frank Jesse, Alfred Anthony, Robert Edward and Maureen Torregrossa (parents: Blanche and Alfonso Torregrossa)

Tillie became a U.S. citizen in 1944. Sometime in the 1950s Tillie went to live at the Towers Nursing Home at 65 Hillside Avenue in New York City. She remained there until her passing on July 2, 1958.

A memorial service was held on July 3, 1950 at the Riverside Memorial Chapel in Manhattan with immediate burial afterwards at Mount Hebron Cemetery.
