 Jodie DiEduardo, vice president of Crest Savings Bank, turned 50 Jan. 2 and every parking meter surrounding Crest Savings Bank had a “Jodie’s turning 50” sign.

Everyone in the bank was wearing a name tag that that also said “Jodie’s turning 50” and she was greeted in her office on the second floor of the bank with balloons and over the hill signs and best wishes from her colleagues.

Her surprise party was held on Friday night, Jan. 4, the 4th of January, where DiEduardo was to have dinner with Wally and Kathy Lerro at the Bolero Resort, in downtown Wildwood. Almost 100 guests were on hand to yell surprise, and greet her very warmly. They even had Jodie currency on all the tables for that night.

Greeting her was her mom Joan DiEduardo Smith, her sister Julie Reeb, and the other hostess for the night Jennifer Konides.

DiEduardo was with her husband Michael, who also filled in as DJ for the night and Jennifer was with her husband Nick Konides. Carol Strickland, Rose Haywood and Aunt Dolores Love were on hand for the celebration. Bob and Diane McCullion, along with Dottie and Lew Ostrander, Patrick and Michelle Rosenello, Kate and Jack Weis, Betty Crossen, Charlie and Michelle Johnson, and Joanne Cacci, along with her daughter Francine Cacci and Steve Sczur, and also Tom and Sue Bradshaw, who rounded out the North Wildwood contingent.

Many from Crest Savings were there, including Ann Marie and Ted Baker, John and Diane Heckel, Tina and Dan Speigel, and Barbara Jean Warner and her fiancé Tim Tanghare.

Elizabeth and Mike Terenik were there as were Kevin and Jeanine Yecco. Friends from the Wildwood Convention Center John and Jen Siciliano, were there with John and Vicki Lynch and Ben Rose. Another member of GWITDA Paul Reidenbach and wife Kathy were there. Dan and Carolyn MacElrevey were there and also Arlene MacDonald, Rick and Sherry Davis, Lori and Dave Roach, and Jodie’s good friends Hope Schaaf and Gail Wilsey.

DiEduardo went to Lower Cape May Regional High School, graduated in 1981 and went right to work first with Bank of America where she stayed for 16 years. Then a co-worker told her about a new branch of Crest Savings Bank opening up in North Wildwood. Jodie got the job and has been with the bank for 17 years. In 2012, she was made senior vice president and is the branch administrator overseeing eight offices in the county. She has attended Fairfield University in Connecticut National School of Banking a three year program and for a while had to live in the dorms in order to get college credit.
