Hannah Paige Fauber passed peacefully in December of 2022 at the tender age of 29. She was preceded in death by her loving father Bill Fauber and overprotective and faithful brother Alec Fauber.
In her short time on this earth, Hannah lived. She lived to spread compassion, joy, laughter, love, and hope to her patients, amazing friends, and loving family. No matter where she was she could light up a room with her smile and laugh.
To have known Hannah is to have loved her. She found great purpose in sharing in the successes, joys, and challenges of those around her. Hannah was authentically and wholeheartedly there for everyone in her life. She took cues from no one and made her own set of rules to live by, although never imposing those rules on anyone else. She was an avid traveler (to 19 countries and most states in the US) and saw the world that most never see through adventurous eyes and with an adventurous spirit. She cherished her friends and family- a few snippets from sentiments shared by some of those dearest friends:
“Hannah has shaped and impacted my life in so many ways and first introduced me to Stephen (now husband). She inspired me and everyone she met with endless positivity”- Erin
“You brought so much fun and silliness to my life… I can’t put into words how much you impacted my life. I love you forever Hannah.” Jordan
“Hannah truly lived life to the fullest and was the best dance partner, travel buddy, and overall best friend” Martina
“You never stopped seeing the world in a beautiful light and I’ll try to do the same. There will never be another Hannah Fauber…” Sarah H
“The 5 years I spent living with Hannah were the best years. We shared so many laughs, a few tears, and memories I will cherish for a lifetime…” Megan
“Hannah has been a light in my life and so many other lives and that light will never dim. I love you forever Han. ” Sarah L
“She’ll never stop bringing meaning to our lives and inspiring us to be the best people we can so we can do her proud.” Lauren
“You raised an amazing daughter who lived boldly and loved her friends with such a big heart. Thank you for bringing that bright light into the world” Tessa (sent to Hannah’s mom)
“I hear you in every song. I see you in the trees and flowers. You were always made for more than this world could offer.” Lindsey
Hannah is survived by her ever-devoted mom, Cindy, her partner in crime and loving “Daw-Daw”, Dottie Hancock Hall, her ever-present second father David, and God father Mike and all her amazing, devoted and cherished friends and extended family that Hannah loved with all her heart.
The family would like to recognize how much Hannah also loved her fellow medical professionals, friends, and patients at St. Mary’s Hospital.
The family is holding a celebration of life for Hannah in the spring of 2023 with dates and times forthcoming. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the National Brain Tumor Network (https://www.braintumornetwork.org/donate/) or Hope Church RVA (www.hopechurchRVA.com) in Hannah’s honor.
