Christy Walton is the richest woman in the world. She inherited her wealth when husband John Walton, a former Green Beret and Vietnam war medic, died in an airplane crash in 2005. John’s side investment in First Solar had boosted Christy’s net worth well above the rest of her family, but the stock sank in 2012, narrowing her lead.
