The San Francisco Giants announced on Thursday that Cristin Coleman, the wife of two-time Cy Young Award winning pitcher Tim Lincecum, has died.
"Our deepest condolences go out to Tim, Cristin’s family and all those whose lives she touched as a friend and teacher," the Giants said in a statement shared on Twitter. "She was beloved by the Giants family and her caring and genuine spirit touched those of us who were fortunate enough to know her during her and Timmy’s years with us."
According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, Coleman, a principal at Washington Elementary School in Burlingame, California, died surrounded by family in late June following a bout with cancer.
The Giants were extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Tim Lincecum’s wife, Cristin Coleman. Our deepest condolences go out to Tim, Cristin’s family and all those whose lives she touched as a friend and teacher.

Coleman's parents, Randy and Sue Coleman, told the San Mateo Daily Journal that their daughter "had a keen intelligence and a kind, compassionate way — a ‘lightness of being’ — that enabled her to navigate life gracefully, always looking for ways to help and support others."
The family added that Coleman was grateful for the support she received during her battle.
In December, the Burlingame School District shared a social media post of Coleman standing under paper cranes created in her honor by the Washington Elementary School community.
Lincecum played for the Giants from 2007 to 2015 and helped the team capture World Series championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
