Significant changes in life course
Stan's chronic back issues causing unemployment,
house flooded in Estes Park Flood, summer 2013.
He also has developed heart problems and arthritis.
No overt racism, but, definite covert racism involved in every-day life. Example: "it's those Mexican workers that banged up our fridge while moving it in!" (implying they are not careful and are lazy workers) then next sentence expressing beliefs in equality of all people and how they have no vestiges left over of racism from upbringing in Midewest. My grandparents generation on the Sallee side definitely have somewhat a denial of white privilege.
Irish Catholic
College Educations
Raised in middle class white families,
but for 35 years of marriage, Blase and
Kathy have lived and worked in
impoverished African American communities
in St. Louis. They also attend an African American
Catholic church. They don't pretend not to see
race, but they also do not discriminate at all.
Definite positive views of diversity through the family.

Very active Roman Catholics
working middle class,
active volunteers in poor, diverse neighborhood
High emphasis on education/college
Active Catholics
Emphasis on education/college
Boettcher Grandparents taught mostly positive views on diversity, discouraging all racism and acknowledging certain aspects of white privilege. Not perfect, but an overall belief in all people being created with equal rights, but still being unique in the way we look, act, and live.
Middle class working family
Mostly positive
views of diversity
Jerome was in the army,
fought in WWII
Strong Catholic
very attuned to issues
in the church and actively
questioning what she believes
Significant changes in life course:
"I was let go in 2010 from a Management Company that managed local bars found inside Casinos in Las Vegas. It was a horrible experience but after some time I was able to understand it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I drew unemployment for 99 weeks, trying to find another job, but not too aggressive in my search. I slid into social security at the age of 62. I Had not planned to retire until I was 67." - now she is extremely active volunteering at church and in community
Mostly positive views on racial diversity, though some discrimination against homosexuals (does not believe same-sex marriage should be allowed).
straight sexual orientation - divorced, retired woman
Significant change in life course
: after almost thirty years of marriage, husband CJ died from a heart attack, leaving Margaret widowed.
Not atheist, but estranged from what she sees as hypocrisy of the church - people who call themselves Christian, but act horribly. Grew up in Catholic school.
Positive views on diversity - people are more than they appear, and should be treated thus.
Middle class working family
CJ was Lutheran, baptized two of their kids as Lutheran
Blue collar - went to two years of college at Colorado University, but dropped out and started his business. He started the business in 1982
Working middle class family
Though raised by parents with covert and some overt racism, my father has come to view diversity in positive light, and holds mostly good views. I believe there is still vestiges of covert racism left over in my father, but he recognizes that and does his best to address it and have more just beliefs and actions.
My father grew up unchurched, and lacking much of his own belief system. After he was on his own, he developed moderate atheism - not to the point where he was avid about his beliefs, but he just didn't really believe in a God. Now, after having been married to his wife, my mother Cece, he is attending a Methodist church, and would call himself a Christian - though he is not officially a part of any church
Blue collar - Shawn has been working full-time jobs since he was 15, only went to one year of college
Levi has a degree in engineering and works full time at an engineering firm that makes power plant cooling systems
Shawn is not necessarily atheist, but he says he doesn't know what he believes. He does not have a religion that he adheres to. He says, "I believe that 90 % of most 'organized religion' groups are not totally what they put out there that they are."
Life-altering event:
learning in school and having friends who were not white European Americans made Shawn and his brothers choose to consciously not be prejudice as much as was possible, against their father's influence.
Associates degree in business management and leadership
Lived in Stuggart, Germany for
many years
Speaks English and a lot of German - traveled extensively in Germany
High school diploma,
no college
Uncle Charlie is French Canadian - French was first language
Mikki has step-son with Autism, something that Aunt Teresa's uncle Justin had.
Though Teresa grew up in a catholic family and went to catholic school, she has rejected Catholic beliefs. She sees a lot of hypocrisy in religion and does not follow any religion herself, even though she believes in some of the moral philosophies of Jesus as a person who wasn't God.
Significant change in life course
: at age 46, Teresa went to finish her undergrad degree and now holds a law degree as well - works toward Gender equality issues
Positive views on diversity - especially gender equality. Teresa advocates for women especially in her law work
Working middle-class
BA in Organizational Communication (minor in HR Management)
Semi-active Catholic
Significant change in life course
: July 2012, Gloria's house in Colorado Springs was burnt down by a wildfire. Because of that - having to sleep in gymnasiums, stand in line for food, and ask for help from other peoples generosity, she has changed her outlook on life, and is now extremely involved in her community and much more so in her spiritual search as well. In 2014, experienced bitter divorce with husband.
Very positive views on diversity and acceptance for all people - differences recognized and appreciated
Mikki, and Tom both were in Navy
Anthony sees his upbringing as being greatly influenced by his grandma having immigrated from Ireland - he saw his family as coming from an immigration background. He thinks immigration to new economic opportunity also influenced the fact that his parents saw it fit to have such a large family
The Great Depression was something Anthony's parents, my grandparents went through as young people. The fact that they had to work through it, persevering to make a name for themselves, led to Anthony's perception of his culture in the lower middle class, as being something to be proud of. Anthony's social class as a single male who works for a medial salary is a defining point in his culture.
Mostly positive views on diversity
After leaving the Catholic church because of differing theological views, my mother went on a quest to find a church home that fit what she was looking for in a family and community of believers. She found the Methodist church and has been very involved for over ten years now. I was raised in First United Methodist Church from sixth grade forward, because of my mother.
Positive beliefs about diversity
Strong emphasis on higher education

My mom helped run her and my dad's small business, Scott's Pro-Lawn. They worked extremely hard, and have a comfortable middle-class lifestyle. Now they are retired and she is active in volunteering at our church.

Significant Changes in Life Course
: Jerome being the first in his family to earn a college degree, and moving his Irish immigrant family to a higher socioeconomic class. His mother had moved from Limerick, Ireland to the USA.
Significant Changes in Life Course
: moving from Oklahoma to Kansas and then more importantly to Colorado (Estes Park) This marked the end of a farming family - Jerome was the last Sallee to be a farmer before he started working for the phone company
My great grandmother is Alice Rice Boettcher, was a 2nd generation Irish on her dad's side 1st generation on her moms. She was from Limerick Ireland and was raised in a Catholic orphanage. Earl Boettcher, Alice's husband, my great grandfather lived in Ireland as well, but descended from a small German town in the Province, Baden-Wurttenburg. His mom Molly Malone was Irish immigrant from Belfast area, and worked as a maid.
Interesting Random facts about my background
From Uncle Anthony: "I want to focus on the three to four generations of my family, the Boettchers, that begin with my Grandparents, and includes my parents and their siblings, myself and my 7 siblings, and you and all your 16 cousins. I don't know that much about the parts of Europe that all my grandparents were from. I do know that my Dad's mom was born in Ireland, and although she moved here as a young girl, that fact always shaped his upbringing and therefore the upbringing of future generations. He viewed himself as from an immigrant background, a factor that greatly influenced my Mom's side as well. Although they were further removed from their migration to this country, they still were in touch with their seafaring roots (My mom's grandfather was a Danish sea captain) and my Grammie was actually born in Hawaii when it was still a republic, and not yet a US Territory.
I think in migrating to this country, many Americans did so for religious freedom. Our family may not have been one of those where religious freedom was as much the driving factor as poverty was, or the draw of new opportunities in a new land. But when you look at my generation and note that my very Catholic parents had 8 children, you can't escape the fact that Religious Freedom here in this country was a factor in that number. My parents were told in the bible to "go forth and multiply" and so they did. Would this have happened in other countries and other cultures? Possibly, but it is in this country that Catholics became known for having big families. That is because the opportunities to support such a large brood existed here in the land of opportunity. Large Catholic families were indeed very common in Ireland, for instance, but often lived in poverty, and were a factor that led to the Great Potato Famine. Here in America, there was more security in having that type of family, so it became very common. Our highly social natures evident in the last 2 generations stems in part from being from a large family; if you didn't speak up and interact you wouldn't fit in."
More random facts
Also from Uncle Anthony: " I think that the Great Depression was a huge factor in how our family came to be what it was. My dad was from rural Minnesota, and during the depression it became impossible for his father to find work. At age 16, my dad joined the Civilian Conservation Corps, which was a public works project that was part of Roosevelt's New Deal to give Americans opportunity during the Great Depression. This is where my dad learned the value of hard work, his love for geology, and smoked his first cigarette, all factors that shaped his future family. At roughly the same time, his parents moved out of Minnesota, pursuing opportunities in the state of California. My dad eventually followed them there prior to WWII. He told me that in California he felt out of place and different. He and his family were called "Stinking Okies" by the resident population; although they were not actually from Oklahoma, it was the term used in California to describe all who migrated there at the time. Read Grapes of Wrath for a better understanding of what it might have been like. But my grandparents really had no other choice, and eventually came to cherish California as home. And if they had not moved there, my dad would never have met my mom, who had been born and raised in the Bay Area.
Both World Wars also shaped my Grandfather, who fought in World War I, and my dad, who fought in WWII. I think the main way these wars shaped the men who fought in them was to make them love their country even more, and to be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for it. Those at home sacrificed much as well, and their is no way to overestimate the part these wars had in shaping American culture and families. This is certainly true in our case"
The final thing I would like to mention that influenced the culture in which I was raised, is the local culture of the small mountain town in which I lived. There are a lot of self-proclaimed "hippies" living alongside also self-proclaimed "hics." These somewhat derogatory words were universally used where I grew up in Durango, and they represented a lot of the demographics of people who influenced me. I had a somewhat limited worldview because of the isolation of the small town atmosphere, and ethnic and cultural diversity is something I started to encounter and learn more about since moving to Seattle. I do know though, that by growing up in a middle class American family in a small, isolated mountain town with a quite eccentric population focused mainly on fitness, health, environment, and recreation, I am the way I am. Having my mom take me to the Methodist church was probably the best thing to happen to me in my life, because I find my main identity in Christ, as a son, and servant, then next in my family.
