Tillie was born in the town of Snovsk, pronounced as Snufsk, now called Shchors, in the Ukraine. She immigrated to the United States and moved to Chicago, living near her brother Harry, sister Goldie, and their mother. She was a seamstress, and worked in the garment industry. Because she was fluent in many languages including, English, Yiddish, Russian, Polish, Romanian, and Czech, she was able to communicate with most employees, and was promoted to floor supervisor. In the 1920's she participated in several strikes, and was arrested.
