Martin Short's wife died relatively young – at only 58 – but her death was from natural causes, a coroner official confirms.
"[Nancy Dolman] was under the care of a private physician for a natural disease," L.A. County Coroner Chief Craig Harvey tells PEOPLE. "There will be no coroner involvement."
Dolman had been battling cancer, according to a 2007 tabloid report, but a publicist for the actor declined to comment on the cause of death.

Nancy Dolman, the wife of Father of the Bride star Martin Short, has died, a representative of the actor-comedian's said Monday. Dolman, a former actress, was 58.
"Sadly, we can confirm that Martin Short's wife did pass away," said Camille Kuznetz, adding no further details about time, location or cause, CNN reports. "We do not have any other comment to make."
Saturday morning, Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to an emergency call for medical help at the couple's Pacific Palisades home, though no one was transported from the residence, said LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey.

In case you missed it, Martin Short appeared on David Letterman's Late Show this week, and the TV host presented Short with a recent PEOPLE.com photo of the comic and Steve Martin, both in their bathing suits, splashing about in the waters of the Caribbean. (Their "bromance" followed that of Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson.)
"What are you inferring?" asked Short. "I don't want to embarrass you," Letterman replied, and Short clarified: "We're good friends. We vacation together. We've been known to bathe together."

Another "Bromance" blooms, with longtime pals Steve Martin and Martin Short (right) enjoying their Baywatch moment together on St. Bart's in the Caribbean, splashing around just like buddies Woody Harrelson and Owen Wilson (left) were also doing this month in Hawaii. Back in 1983, Martin and Short starred together (with Chevy Chase) in Three Amigos. So, where's the third?
