Ms. Mature Irving Crowned


Irving, Texas. November 3, 2017

he Irving Arts Center’s Carpenter Hall was the site of last month’s 2017 Ms. Mature Irving Pageant where four senior ladies competed for the coveted crown. Hosted by Irving Community Television Network Anchor/Producer Cathy Whiteman and Doug McAllister, the event celebrated the many ways senior ladies contribute to the Irving community and society at-large.

After a spirited competition in the categories of personality, talent and evening wear, Louise Childs was crowned Ms. Mature Irving 2017. Childs was crowned by 2016 Ms. Mature Irving Marilyn Walford. Contestant Alene Ford received this year’s runner-up and Susan Wiese won the Congeniality award.

This year marks the 35th year of the pageant, which featured a special guest appearance by the reigning Miss Texas Margana Wood, who presided over the evening wear portion of the event. Congratulations are in order for this year’s group of contestants, listed below, who all were first-timers to the competition.

  • Louise Childs
  • Alene Ford
  • Monica Walters
  • Susan Wiese

According to event organizers, each of the contestants represented themselves with style and grace by showcasing their inner beauty, intelligence and Irving pride. Louise Childs will represent at many of Irving’s senior events throughout the year until the new Ms. Mature Irving is crowned in October 2018.
