We know virtually nothing about Anne as she is not mentioned in scripture. What we know is through tradition that has been handed down for 2000 years. She was Jewish and her husband was named Joachim. They became parents of a daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, who became the mother of Our Lord. That made her the grandmother of Jesus. It is thought that they lived in Nazareth.
