Susan Whitford

Bella Vista, AR, 1953 - 2021

Susan Whitford, 67, of Bella Vista, Ark., passed away at home with her son Eric, daughter Bridget, and partner of 30 years, Gary Willey, by her side February 10th, 2021, at 11 p.m.
She was born in July of 1953 to Robert and Donna Force, both preceding her in death. Susan is survived by her five siblings, brother Floyd (Susie) Force of Pekin, Illinois, brother Lloyd (Carol Gleason) Force of Creve Coeur, Illinois, brother Larry (Karen) Force of Bella Vista, Ark., sister LuAnn Force of Marquette Heights, Illinois; brother Dean Force of Austin, Texas; son, Eric (Krista) Whitford of Bella Vista; daughter Bridget (Mark) Edwards of Centerton, Ark. Susan was blessed with, adored, and enjoyed every moment she had with her grandchildren, Bryant (Krista), Erica, Ian, Andrew, Dylan, Aaron, Noah, Luke, and Derek (Debra) and great-grandchild, Penelope. She is also survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Besides spending time with family and friends, Susan enjoyed everything outdoors such as gardening, riding motorcycles, checking out classic cars, and putting her toes in the sand at the beach.
Though she is no longer with us, Susan's spirit will live on through the memories of those who were fortunate enough to know her, and we can celebrate knowing she is in heaven relaxing with family and friends that parted before her.
No services are planned; she was cremated at Susan's request. Arrangements are by Bella Vista Funeral Home and Crematory. Fond memories and condolences may be shared at
