The American Express site has the following instructions:

What should be done with a deceased person's unused Travellers Cheques?
The estate beneficiary or executor should take the Travellers Cheques, the death certificate, and any other estate papers designating the beneficiary to their bank, or the estate's bank, and instruct the bank to call an American Express Travellers Cheque Customer Service Centrefor further instructions.
