She was born in Cleveland to the late Catherine and John Pryor Moore Sr. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Joyce Moore; and two brothers, John Pryor Moore Jr. and Louis Moore.

Willie Sue was born and raised of the Baptist Faith at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church.  She enjoyed cooking, music, especially gospel, and she loved spending time with her family. 

She was very caring, kind, and a concerned and loving mother.  Willie Sue never met a stranger and always welcomed people with an open heart.  "Baby Cakes" was the nickname for those she loved.  After her son purchased her a typewriter, her intentions were to write her life story.
