Jeopardy airs final episode with contestant who died of cancer

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Wednesday's episode of Jeopardy was a bittersweet moment for the family of one contestant.

Cindy Stowell died from cancer earlier this month. It was before any of her episodes on the game show aired. Stowell won six contests in a row on Jeopardy. 

Her final episode aired on Wednesday.

Stowell won more than $103,000 during her run, some of which will go to cancer research. 

"Cindy wanted to donate her money to the Cancer Research Institute," said Greg Stowell, Cindy Stowell's brother. "And any viewers who wanted to donate any money to the Cancer Research Institute, can do so easily through www.cancerresearch.org.  I think she kind of felt like she wanted to do some good with it."

Stowell taped the episodes in August and September while battling Stage 4 colon cancer.
