Workflow continues to run after item is deleted

I have two workflows that start when an item in a list is created.

1. waits for a specific field to change and performs a calculation and updates a SharePoint column

2. waits for a specific date then sends an email

 

If the item is deleted before either of these events occur, the workflows continue to run and show as "Workflows in Progress" on the Workflow Settings page.

 

How can I terminate these workflows automatically if the item is deleted while they are in a 'waiting' state?
