Doris Adelia (Rider) Brodrick, 90, of Shawnee, passed away Sunday, March 13, 2016, in Shawnee.

Doris was born Nov. 8, 1925, in Okay, Oklahoma, to Clyde and Cora (Barnett) Rider.

She attended Macomb School through graduation.

Doris married Carl “Leon” Brodrick on Dec. 21, 1944, in Boise City, Oklahoma. He preceded her in death on December 20, 2004, the day before their 50th anniversary. To this union was born one son, Edward Leon in June of 1950.

Early in their marriage they bought and farmed 80 acres near Campo, Colorado. Soon after, they became pastors of the Assembly of God Church in Campo. In 1956 they moved to Rocky Ford, Colorado, and served as pastors there for 17 years. They also pastored churches in Ft. Lupton, Colorado, and Ulysses, Kansas.

The ministry was her life, and she preached in her way, and he in his. They moved back to Oklahoma after their retirement, and attended First Assembly of God in Tecumseh, pastored by her brother, Pastor Robert Rider and currently by her grandson, Pastor Chad Brodrick.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Leon Brodrick; parents, Clyde and Cora Rider; five brothers, Rev. Robert, Carl, Royal, Orville, and Jack Rider; and sister, Marjorie Oldham.
