Via the Giants:

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.

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.

An obituary for Coleman was published in the San Mateo Daily Journal, and said that she lost her life on June 27 due to cancer.

Cristin Coleman, a beloved educator and principal at Burlingame School District’s Washington Elementary School, lost her battle with cancer in late June, district officials and her family announced in an email Monday.

‘If you had a relationship with Cristin, my deepest condolences. You aren’t alone, many of us are feeling this keenly,’ wrote Superintendent Chris Mount-Benites in an email Monday.

Coleman was surrounded by family when her battle with cancer came to an end June 27. She died peacefully at home, her parents, Randy and Sue Coleman said in a letter to the district community that was included in Mount-Benites’ email.

Lincecum was a notable omission on the list of attendees for Saturday’s 2012 World Series reunion at Oracle Park. Though Lincecum’s marriage has been unknown to the public until now, their relationship went back until at least 2012, when Coleman was present during the Giants’ playoff run and in attendance with Lincecum at the 2012 parade.

I’m so saddened by the loss of such a great human,” Brandon Crawford’s wife, Jalynne Crawford said on Twitter. “She touched me in so many ways. We connected on education and helping others. Prayers for her family and Timmy!”

According to the the SM Daily Journal, “a celebration of Cristin Coleman’s life will be hosted by the district later this summer or fall and officials are exploring ideas to further commemorate her and her contributions to the Washington campus.”
