CONGRATULATIONS to the Elegant, Beautiful & Vivacious, LILLIE MADISON, Ms. Texas Senior America 2012. We would also like to thank the State Director Mary Frances Hansen and the Sponsors for another fabulous Texas state pageant and Mary Frances Hansen!
Lillie was born in the beautiful city of Knoxville, TN with the God given gift of a melodious voice. As a child she started singing gospel songs that inspired and carried her through her teens and adulthood. Lillie is the gorgeous mother of three sons, grandmother of two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. While maintaining home, work and career, Lillie had a determination to inspire others through song. With this notable characteristic she performed for Alex Haley, former Vice President Al Gore, and former Gov. of TN, Ned McWhorten.
Lillie was transferred from Knoxville, TN to Dalls/Ft. Worth with Delta Airlines, Inc. in 1994. This was a turning point in her life. While still a gospel singer, her talent broadened to ballads, love and inspirational songs. She has won several awards for singing in the metroplex area. This is a true passion, to feel each song belongs to you as Lillie pours her heart out in song. What a wonderful world this would be to lift our troubles and worries and sing them away.
Lillie has met so many wonderful and loving people in this great state of Texas. She is a member of the Cameo Club of Texas and with them performs at Veterans' Hospitals, and for residents of independent and assisted living communities. She is a member of the Potter's House in Ft. Worth, Texas. Her special interests include working in her flower bed, gardening, ceramics and water aerobics.
In cnclusion I leave this thought with you:
Throughout my life singing has been my inspiration. Through song I share with others the source of my strength, which gives me confidence to handle the present and prepare for the future without fear. One of my greatest joys in life is extending my hand to help other people. I remain faithful to God who sustains my very existence.
Live for today, learn yesterday, and dream for tomorrow.
My MOTTO: "I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me" (Phil.4:13)
My Love to ALL,
The Ms. Senior America Pageant is

inner beauty of all senior Americans. The Ms. Senior America philosophy is
