Willie Mae Morton was born on June 09, 1931, in Camden, Mississippi to James & Arkansas Stinson. She married Bill Henry Morton Senior in May of 1950. To this union 5 children were born. The family relocated to Chicago, Illinois in 1958. 

Willie Mae accepted the Lord as her personal savior at an early age. She attended Bell Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Clarksdale Mississippi then later became a member of Mt Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago Illinois. 

Willie Mae worked as an assistant for Browns Veterinarian Hospital and later became an assembler for Video Craft manufacturing company. She spent many years working as a laborer for Arial Platting company and later retired from Sears Roebuck & Company where she retired early so that she could care for her mother. She was a devoted mother and daughter and was the caretaker for both of her parents until God called them home. 

Willie Mae was affectionately known as “Sister (Martin)” by those who knew her well. In her free time she loved to read her bible, complete her word puzzles, and spend hours shopping at her favorite local thrift store. 

Sister’s smile, laugh and drive to do what’s right is the substance that attracted so many to her. She was a strong-willed woman that often gave unsolicited advice. You knew that she meant what she said even though, “She didn’t mean no harm!”
