Patti Page dies at 85; singer helped widen country music audience
Patti Page, the Oklahoma-born pop singer whose gossamer voice on "The Tennessee Waltz," "The Doggie in the Window" and other 1950s hits offered a soothing counterpart to the revolutionary new sound of rock 'n' roll, died New Year's Day in Encinitas, Calif., where she'd lived for several decades. She was 85.
