*Note* The Birth and Death Locations are approximates as neither locations are listed in the Find a Grave Database (that I can find anyway). Tatyana was born in Glazov in the Udmurt Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic and she died outside the village of Pekalin in the Smalyavichy region, which is located in Belarus.
*Additional Note* Her name is also spelled Tatiana when translated back from Russian according to Google

Soviet Sniper in World War II (36 confirmed kills before capture and execution) and Former Kindergarten Teacher, she was posthumously awarded the Gold Star and Hero of the Soviet Union Status. Tatyana trained simultaneously as a nurse and sharpshooter for the war effort; she was taken captive by the Germans and tortured for information but she refused to speak, so after her eyes had been gouged out she was shot point blank by an anti-tank artillery rifle. There is now a memorial for her in her native Glazov, as well as streets being named after her in three different cities.
