A new bench dedicated to Jean Marie LaChance has been installed on the Prince Albert Rotary Trail, near the Victoria Hospital.

LaChance, a 29-year-old mother of five was murdered September 15,1991. Her remains were found in a field near the Victoria Hospital. It has been 32 years since LaChance was murdered and her death is still under investigation.

Theron Morin has been working with the City of Prince Albert to find a way to honour his mother.

Parks Manager Tim Yeoman suggested that a memorial bench could be installed, and it would be on the Rotary Trail. Morin agreed that this would be a good option for his mother. He started to fundraise and was pleasantly surprised by the community response, and he raised the funds.

“Hearing my previous story with the police regarding my mom and Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and it definitely propelled my cause, it helped the fundraiser so much,” explained Morin.

Morin was able to raise $2,100 in two-days. The bench faces to the east for people to enjoy watching the sunrise. It has an inscription that reads – “Jean Marie LaChance In memory of a loving mother, auntie, sister, daughter, and friend. We will never forget and will always remember you” and has an image of a dreamcatcher.

“If anyone knows anything, no matter how minute they think it is, just please reach out to the police department, any tips will do from that night, and it will be a big relief to my family.”

If you have information about the murder of Jean Marie LaChance, please contact the Prince Albert Police Services at 306-953-4222 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
