Obituary for Janice Fay Hanges

Janice Fay Hanges, a White Plains resident, died December 25, 2019 at the age of 59. She was born June 21, 1960 in Brooklyn, NY. Her parents were Henry and Sandra Harrison. After her father Henry's passing, Sandra married Barton “Bob” Schaffer, who later adopted Janice and her sister Cheryl.
On September 22, 1985 she married Stewart Hanges in Randolph Township, NJ.
Janice loved Community Theater, both acting and directing and received awards for both from the the Theater Association of New York (TANYS).
She worked for Dream Vacations as a Travel Agent.
Beside her husband Stewart, of White Plains, Janice is survived by her sister Cheryl Schaffer of Medford,MA.


I have Janice to thank for my theater life
and my life.
She taught me a great many things I managed to learn
and some I was almost too dense to receive.
Most important –
I learned how to love.
Until Janice I never thought I would know that.

But where does the love go now?
It goes nowhere.
It stays.
Goodbye my love,
and Hello.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Janice’s name to The American Cancer Society, or the Amateur or Community Theater of your choice.
