85. Christy Wal­ton

Forbes - - PROMOTION — DAN FRANCIS -

Wal­ton’s net worth is up slightly in the past year along with shares of Wal-mart, the re­tail­ing be­he­moth founded by her hus­band John’s fa­ther, Sam. Christy in­her­ited her stake af­ter John, a one­time Green Beret, died in 2005 in a plane crash. He gave half his stake to char­i­ta­ble trusts; the rest went to Christy, who got one sixth, and their son Lukas (No. 33) got one third.
