Kathryn C. Treat passed away on Sunday December 21st 2014 at 2.20am (California time). On Friday December 19th, after having a wonderful time at the Rave Reviews Book Club’s virtual Christmas party, in a virtual chat room with her fellow RRBC VIP Lounge members, Kathryn informed them that she was not feeling well and that she was going to leave. Shortly thereafter she suffered a haemorrhagic stroke and then lapsed into a coma.
Kathryn was an honorary board member of the Rave Reviews Book Club, where she served as Membership Director from December 2013 until October 2014. She is the author of ‘Allergic to Life: My Battle for Survival, Courage and Hope’. She inspired and encouraged many with this book, and so if you have not had the pleasure of reading it please visit Amazon to get your copy. The book was one of the first ones I read and reviewed for the Rave Reviews Book Club, and I am still in awe of the suffering Kathryn had to endure due to her various allergies.
Kathryn was a dedicated member of the RRBC until her passing, and was one of the most supportive members the club had….not just to one, but to all. Kathryn leaves a husband to mourn her, and also her mother, a sister, her two daughters, a son-in-law, and three grandchildren (whom she adored more than life), as well as her entire RRBC family.
Let us remember Kathryn and honour her memory by always being kind to one another and by always offering our support to another; it’s what she did. It’s how she lived, and it’s who she was. In honour, many blogs across the world are memorialising Kathryn today with the same post that you see here. If Kathryn touched your life in any way, please share your memories and comments below. As everyone who knew Kathryn may not yet know of her home-going, we ask that you also share this page on all your social media forums.
There is a memorial page on the Rave Reviews Book Club site that will remain. Please stop by to leave your comments and memories of Kathryn as well, so that her family will get a sense of just how loved she was by so many. There you will also find more information on Kathryn and how RRBC has planned to continually honour her in other ways.
