This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Blanche Greenway Hayes[1] (1883-1972), Ohio, 20th Century painter. 

Blanche Hayes was born in Cambridge, Ohio on January11, 1883, the daughter of Robert M. Greenway and Caroline Neubeck.[2]  The family later moved to Marietta, Ohio where Blanche graduated high school in 1901. [3]  She then studied art and music at Marietta College. There under Professor Nye her art curriculum consisted of “[a] two years' course in drawing…, which comprise[d] in the first year charcoal drawing from geometrical solids, outline and shaded studies from still-life, and the second year drawing from casts of detached features, from blocked heads and from finished casts of heads.”[4] She also received instruction “in oil, watercolor and china painting.”[5] 

She married William V. Hayes (1877-1940) before1912; they had three children. [6]  The known body of her work post-dates 1940, which is the year that both her mother and husband died. She painted in oil on canvas board, and still life compositions as well as every day scenes in and around Marietta, Ohio, were her common subjects.  Her signature may be found as “Blanche G. Hayes”, “B.G. Hayes”, or “Blanche Hayes”; and her paintings were often dated.[7] 

Blanche Hayes died in Marietta, Ohio on January 4, 1972, a week short of her 89th birthday.  She is buried with her husband in Marietta’s Oak Grove Cemetery. [8]
