Before Cindy Stowell passed away from cancer on December 5th, she was a contestant on Jeopardy. While Stowell is no longer with us, her pre-taped episodes of the game show are now airing on television, and she’s currently running an impressive six-game win streak. While Stowell’s illness wasn’t known to her competition, the fates seem to have been aware. Stowell has racked up multiple come-from-behind wins in the Final Jeopardy round, and her earnings now total over $100,000. The best part? Stowell dictated that all of her winnings be donated to cancer-related charities.
Sooner or later, someone is going to defeat Cindy Stowell1, but she’ll always be an ass kicker, and a hell of a champion.
