Pat Wolff grew up in the middle of Indiana.

At the end of highschool she was hired to play saxophone with Freddie Shaffer and the Victory Sweethearts, an all-girl big band from Frankfort. She went on the road for the next seven years.

One night in Cleveland she met a tenor man in the Bob Chester Big Band. They fell in love and after a month long

cross-country courtship Gene Wolff and Patsy Kasler quit their bands, got married, and moved to Denver, then on to Michigan.
