Doris Virginia Brodersen, 91, of Warsaw passed away after a brief illness on Sunday, April 11, 2021. Doris was the daughter of the late Riley Edward Gordon and Cammie Evelyn Dameron Gordon. She was the beloved wife for over seventy years of Rudolph “Rudy” Henry Brodersen. Doris was a member of Warsaw United Methodist Church. She was a retired secretary for the office of Dr. Harold Sisson, where she worked for almost twenty years.

Traveling was one of Doris’ passions, but she really shined close to home as well. She gardened and made her yard look beautiful. She baked amazing pound cakes and shared them with friends. She sang in the choir at Warsaw U.M.C. and was active in the U.M.W. Above all she adored her husband and best friend, Rudy. He will miss her beyond measure.

Doris is survived by her devoted husband Rudy, five nieces and nephews and a whole host of dear friends and church family. She was predeceased by her parents and her two brothers, Edward Gordon and Melvin Gordon.
A graveside memorial service will be held for Doris on Friday, April 16, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at Warsaw United Methodist Church Cemetery. The Reverend Terry Eum will officiate. All are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers Rudy asks that you honor Doris’ loving spirit by making a donation to either Warsaw United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 291, Warsaw, VA 22572, or to Doris’ home church, Henderson United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 22, Callao, VA 22435.

Such a wonderful lady. I remember her when I use to go to her church. She was always so sweet and kind to me even after I stopped going there and would see her out and about. truly a good Christian woman. I know she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Love and prayers to the family.

Rudy, I am so sorry for your loss, I have known Doris since I was small and going to Dr. Sisson, I thought she was the most beautiful woman ever, then as I got older I realized she was just as sweet as she was beautiful. I always loved when you two came to Henderson, and usually sat near us and we would get to catch up. What a Blessing y'all were. Hugs Rudy! She will be missed Debbie Childs Harper

Gloria Smith Posted at 07:34pm

Dear Rudy, We express our sincere condolences on the loss of your dear Doris. Our prayers are with you always! Our parents all loved you and Doris so much! We’ve heard so many wonderful stories about you both over the years. May God wrap his arms around you during your time of grief and keep you strong until you meet again! Hugs to you Rudy! Love, Dennis and Gloria
