SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – The San Francisco Giants announced Thursday the death of Tim Lincecum’s wife Cristin Coleman, according to a tweet. The team said Coleman was beloved by the Giants organization as she spent time around the team when Lincecum was a pitcher for the Giants from 2007-2016.
“Our deepest condolences go out to Tim, Cristin’s family and all those whose lives she touched as a friend and teacher,” the tweet read. “She was loved by the Giants family and her caring and genuine spirit touched those of us who were lucky enough to know her during her and Timmy’s years with us.
According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, Coleman died peacefully at his home on June 27. She battled cancer.
Coleman was a longtime Bay Area educator, spending over 15 years in public schools in Fairfield, Belmont, Mill Valley, and most recently in Burlingame, according to her LinkedIn. She most recently served as principal of the Burlingame School District since 2018.
