Hello,
You actually can't do it without developing some event receiver for your list.
There is no trigger for workflows on item deletion.
For more info about the event receiver please read this article:

With SP 2k10 with SP Designer 2k10 you can create an event in designer to do this and I think if you set the trigger to every time a list item is edited/changed that should work for you.

What version of SP?
