Maney loves deeds office, but is ready to relax
To most people the concept of family means many different things. To Phyllis Maney, family is the most important thing. Her family is one of the main reasons she is stepping down as Register of Deeds just as soon as someone else is elected.
Maney has been at the Register of Deeds office since she started working with the prior registrar, Missy Roach in 1986. She and Roach worked well in tandem. “There for a long time it was just me and her,” Maney said. “Sometimes it was like we could almost read each other’s minds.”
Many didn’t always work at the Register of Deeds office. After graduating from Hayesville High School and Tri-County Community College she took a job at a dentist’s office. She really enjoyed the work and the dentist was willing to teach her what she needed to do to assist him. She worked for him until he decided to move his office to Murphy.
