Unfortunately, she left the world at the age of 72 after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage during the summer of 2004 in Cody, Wyoming. Reportedly, she left around $50 million to her children's charity. Nevertheless, her children received $10 million each and grandchildren received $100,000 each. Likewise, her friends and employees also got substantial sums, including John McCabe gaining $8 million and Ron Parks gaining $1 million. Last but not the least, all of her Berkshire Hathaway shares were left to the Buffett foundation, which was later named Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation in memory of the deceased philanthropist.
