Hannah Paige Fauber
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.

I will always remember how sweet, vibrant, and enjoyable it was to work with a be around Hannah. She is a true gem. My condolences to her family and close loved ones.

My deepest condolences! I’ll cherish our memories at JMU. Love and light to her loved ones. Love you Hannah!
My heart breaks for you Cindy. Sending prayers and peace. I love you and I’m here for you.
Cindy & Dottie, my heart is breaking to hear this. I can’t imagine the hurt you are both having to endure. I remember Hannah at about 18 months old at Daw Daw’s house out on the patio. She was a beautiful little girl and her beauty never left her. Praying for both of you. May God hold you tight and comfort you. Love you both, Bill & Carolyn
Hannah already had cancer when I met her, and I couldn’t believe how positive and spunky she was. She never let things get her down. I got introduced to her because Tessa was my roommate and we discovered that Hannah lived right across the street from us! Best neighbor ever!! I cherish the memories of walking to each other’s homes, going out downtown, and celebrating the Fourth of July on Tessa’s boat in Virginia Beach. We jammed out to early 2000’s music on the two hour drive home and couldn’t stop smiling. I miss you Hannah ❤️
What a beautiful young lady, inside and it!!!
Cindy, God Bless you!
Sending love and prayers from Martha and Steve
Sending the biggest possible hugs and prayers to all loved ones. Hannah’s warmth and sweet demeanor made a massive impact on me while in our sorority at JMU. Incredible, loving person all around. Will always remember that and make sure to make that impact on others around me the way she did. Hannah will be so, so missed. ❤️
Dearest Cindy and aunt Dot, the time is never right and the heart is never ready to let our loved ones go. But reading all the comments, sweet Hannah made such an enormous impact on everyone she met. Such a beautiful young lady! Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers, and the peace that passes all understanding that only God can give. Love you.
Hannah made an impact on every person she met. We met senior year at JMU and immediately hit it off. I will forever cherish our fun times together, especially the Spring Break Cruise in 2015. She was the sweetest soul and will be missed by so many. Until we meet again my beautiful Hannah girl! Xo Karissa
Hannah’s smile always made me smile then and will always when I think of her because of the joy she brought me every time in out of work. Praying for you Cindy each and every day that your heart is filled back up with that same joy! -Jacque Creekmore
Dottie, Cindy, Family and Friends my heart goes out to you all. Sending my thoughts and prayers.
Hannah is truly one of the sweetest, best people I’ve been lucky to call a friend. She shaped my college experience at JMU and when I look back on that time, so many of my memories include Hannah, I can’t imagine it without her. She made a huge impact on my life and I will always remember her. Everyone who knows her knows what a fun, positive, loving person she was and I know she will be deeply missed. Sending my sincere condolences to her family and loved ones.
Sending love and prayers. Hannah was such a beautiful young women who touched so many people’s lives. May God give you strength in this incredibly difficult time.
