Freda Stelly - Employee Spotlight May 2021

Freda Stelly - Employee Spotlight May 2021

In the late 1980s, Freda Stelly began her career at the original Home Furniture Plus Bedding on Surrey Street as a part-time office helper during our big sale days. In May of 1994, Freda became a full-time employee - mastering the positions of customer service at the front counter, payroll, and accounts payable. It didn’t take long for Ged Fleming, our founder, to recognize and reward her work ethic, drive, and self-discipline. Ged confidently promoted Freda to Home Furniture’s Finance and Receivables Manager for all stores, a position she maintains today.

When asked about her employment, Freda shares that she has “enjoyed every minute working at Home Furniture. It is like family. We’ve been through a lot over the years, and it’s all been good.”

Riggins Dore, manager of our Surrey street store, says, “Freda is always willing to help anyone in the company no matter what she has going on. She comes in every day with a smile on her face and is a perfect example of the Home Furniture culture.”

Freda’s passion outside of work is spending time with her family, cooking, and fishing. And most of all, she treasures time spent with her 4-year-old great-grandchild, Ahnaleigh.
Born in Morgan City, LA, Freda now resides in Leonville with Robert, her husband of 41 years.

Thank you, Freda, for sharing your joyful attitude, self-discipline, and determination with our Home Furniture Plus Bedding family day after day.
