IMG_2869_1Kathryn C. Treat passed away on Sunday, December 21, 2014 @ 2:20 am (California time).  On Friday, Dec. 19, 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 that she was not feeling well and that she was going to leave.  Shortly thereafter, she suffered a hemorrhagic 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 Dec. 2013, until September, 2014.  Kathryn is the author of “ALLERGIC TO LIFE:  MY BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL, COURAGE AND HOPE” .  She inspired and encouraged many with this book so if you have not had the pleasure of reading it, please head to Amazon and get your copy.

    Thanks for reblogging this, Bette. We all miss Kathryn, and it is heartening to see so many tributes for her today.


    • My privilege and pleasure, Harmony. Sure miss her. Kathryn has set the bar for all of us… I can picture her lovely face smiling down on us now, and she’s pain-free. Met Kathryn on LinkedIn, but she didn’t stop there. We connected on all our social media sites. She invited me to join Rave Reviews Book Club more than once before I finally made the time… Reminding me of how important persistence is when you have something great to share with a friend. Our dear Kathryn was always ready to lend a hand with her support and encouragement. Kathryn Chastain-Treat has left a legacy. ❤ Bette


  2. Bette, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. Hugs.
