Actually, there's nothing wrong with it.
une vieille dame
In fact, I'm not sure if "agees" means old or older...
Google Ngram seems to agree with you here: http://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=vieille+dame%2Cdame+%C3%A2g%C3%A9e%2C&year_start=1800&year_end=2000&corpus=19&smoothing=3&share=
"Tes mamans" isn't a good translation for "your mothers." "Maman" is what people call their mothers; in English, because there are so many possibilities, it has a lot of possible translations: Mom, Mum, Mommy, Mummy, Mam[m]a, Ma...
I might use "tes mamans" when talking to a child (I know a lot of kids who have two moms, so it's something I actually do use in both French and English) but in that case, the English would be "your moms" or "your mommies" (Heather a deux mamans) rather than "your mothers."
