Who Are Patsy Cline’s Children?
Celebrated 1950s American country singer Patsy Cline had two children from her second marriage to linotype operator Charlie Dick: daughter Julie, who was born in 1958, and son Randy, who was born in 1961. Patsy’s first marriage to contractor Gerald Cline was childless.
Daughter Julie Fudge represents her mother’s estate in public functions and supervises her fan club. Born Virginia Patterson Hensley in 1932 in Gore, Virginia, Patsy grew up in poverty, quitting school at 16 to support her single mother and sister. After winning a singing competition, she went on to fame, recording hits such as her signature song “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “I Fall to Pieces.” She died in a plane crash in 1963. Her albums continue to sell as of 2015, and “Rolling Stone” magazine included her in its list of “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.”
