Martin Short's Wife of 30 Years Dead

The wife of actor Martin Short, Nancy Dolman, has died. According to, Dolman passed away on Saturday at the couple's Pacific Palisades home. She was 58.

The Los Angeles City Fire Department responded to a medical emergency call at Short’s address Saturday morning, but nobody was transported to the hospital, said LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey.

The cause of death has not been released, though Nancy was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, when doctors discovered a growth in her left groin area.

Dolman's death is yet another tragedy in the comedian's life. His oldest brother was killed in a car accident when Short was 12 years old and both of his parents died before he was 21.

Short and Dolman married in 1980, after meeting on the set of a Canadian production of the musical Godspell eight years earlier. Together they have three children, Katherine, 27, Oliver, 24 and Henry, 20.
