Warren Buffet's wife was Susan Thompson Buffet. She died in 2004 to cancer, but before her death, she had her own share of wealth to align her with one of the wealthiest people in the world. Her wealth came from a number of projects and investments she was a part of. One of those was the Berkshire Hathaway.

While director, she also owned over 2% of the company. This small percentage added to three billion dollars in 2004, which made her the 153rd wealthiest person in the world. Along with that, Susan Buffet was the Buffet Foundations President and started a singing career.

Susan Thompson Buffet was a director of Berkshire Hathaway, and she owned a little over two percent of the company. This 2% was worth three billion dollars in 2004. She was the 153rd most wealthy person in the world. She was president of the Buffet Foundation, which has contributed millions of dollars to educational groups, family planning groups, medical research, and other various charities.

During their marriage, she left Warren and moved to San Fransico in an attempt to ignite her singing career. The two of them remained married until she succumbed to cancer in 2004. She would have had a share of her husband's fortune, which is worth $84.9 billion.
