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.

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."
