Kathryn 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 us 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.

Allergic To Life by Kathryn C. Treat


Kathryn was a dedicated member of RRBC until her passing and she was one of the most supportive members the club had…not just to one, but to all. Kathryn leaves to mourn her husband, her mother, her two daughters, a son-in-law and two grand-kids (whom she adored more than life), as well as her entire RRBC family.

Let us remember Kathryn and honor her memory by always being kind to one another and by always offering our support to each other. It’s what she did. It’s how she lived. It’s who she was. In honor, many blogs across the world are memorializing Kathryn today with the same post that you see here. If Kathryn touched your life in anyway, 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.

We have erected 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 many. There you will also find more information on Kathryn and how RRBC  plans to continuously honor her in other ways.



About Shirley Harris-Slaughter

I love old buildings and history. That's why I ended up writing about the history that surrounded me all of my life - "Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African-American Catholic Community." Plus our church had closed and the school is torn down, so I felt it was imperative that we preserve the history or it would be lost forever.

  1. Our dear Kathryn–a most beautiful inside-an-outside friend–introduced me to Rave Reviews Book Club. I miss her dearly and thank you for sharing her story on your blog, Shirley.


  2. Shirley Harris-Slaughter says:

    I met Kathryn through my friendship with Nonnie Jules who was bringing us into her circle. Before RRBC, Nonnie was tweeting and supporting us until we caught on and started reciprocating. Kathryn’s book caught my eye so I got a copy and ended up doing a review on my website and forging a personal friendship with her. I joined the board a couple months after it was formed and that’s how I came to know Kathryn. I marveled at her strength in dealing with this strange illness. She was a fighter for sure but it finally got the best of her. Goodbye Kathryn. We’re going to miss you.


  3. I never met Kathryn, but she seemed so nice in her communications with me.


  4. Very sorry to hear of Kathryn’s passing. She was always so positive and encouraging to her fellow authors. Thanks for posting, Shirley.
