More information

She was born Virginia Patterson Hensley on September 8, 1932, in Winchester, Virginia, in the city's Memorial Hospital. She was the eldest child of seamstress Hilda Virginia (née Patterson; March 9, 1916 – December 10, 1998) and blacksmith Samuel Lawrence Hensley (August 16, 1889 – December 11, 1956). She soon had a younger brother and sister, Samuel Jr. (November 13, 1939 – November 1, 2004) and Sylvia (April 14, 1943). They were known in the family as Ginny, John, and Sis. The family moved often before finally settling in Winchester, Virginia, when Patsy was eight. Sam Hensley deserted his family in 1947, but the children's home was reportedly happy nonetheless.



Cline was introduced to music at an early age, singing in church with her mother. She liked stars such as Kay Starr, Jo Stafford, Hank Williams, Judy Garland, and Shirley Temple. She had perfect pitch. Self-taught, she could not read music.
