Amy (Helfrich) Weir

September 2, 1965 – December 1, 2022

Amy (Helfrich) Weir was born on September 2, 1965 in North Platte, Nebraska to Jim and Doris (Dvorak) Helfrich. She attended North Platte Public Schools and Mid Plains Community College. After a brief time in Colorado, Amy moved to Omaha, NE in the 1980s and has lived here ever since. Later Amy attended Bellevue University as a working, single mom and completed a degree in business.

Amy had many business ventures over the years. In the 1990s she started two shops: Gifts from the Heart and Stamps from the Heart. In 2011, The Potting Shed Garden and Gift Center was opened where Amy shared her love of flowers and gardening with anyone who came in. In 2016, Amy and beloved friend and business partner Tammy Wright opened Therapy Bar and Grill and later Nomads Bar and Grill. She loved creating a venue and promoting live music in Omaha. No matter the business, Amy made her customers a priority. Everybody knew her and she knew everybody. A testament to the caring, thoughtful, and genuine person she was and continues to be in our memories.

Amy loved flowers, Diet Coke, gardening, laughing with friends, Reese’s peanut butter M&Ms, NOT having her picture taken, live music, vacationing in Arizona, and spending time with family.

Amy is survived by her son Zach Weir; parents Jim Helfrich and Doris (Dvorak) Helfrich; brother Rick (Mindy) Helfrich; dear friends Candace (Charles) Heil and Tammy Wright; beloved dogs Sadie and Daisy; aunts and uncles; nieces and nephews; countless cousins; and an abundance of friends.

Memorials can be directed to the Sutton Public Schools Music Department (Zach Weir’s School Music Program) or Muddy Paws Second Chance Dog Rescue, or to the family.

    I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Amy last October when she and Tammy were instrumental in helping us put together a fundraiser at their business. Amy went overboard to make things perfect for us and made us feel very welcome. The event was a huge success due in a large part to her support. She impressed me then as an amazing lady with a huge heart! Amy will be greatly missed by many. Love and prayers to her family and friends.

    Amy fought so very hard and was so very courageous and I know felt the love of so many. I know she is flying with the angels and was welcomed into her glorious heavenly home. Memories will always keep her close. RIP dear Amy Lynn
