Staples was born in 1937 in Chicago to Oceola and Roebuck "Pops" Staples. She sang in church as a child along with her siblings. "Pops" Staples initially formed the family band with Cleotha, Pervis and Mavis in 1948, and they began recording in 1953.

Yvonne stepped in for Pervis to sing baritone when he was drafted for the Vietnam War.
