After the death of her husband, Prince Mikhail, who was brutally tortured to death in 1318, Anna took vows in Sofia’s monastery in Tver. In 1365, she moved to the Uspensky monastery built in Kashin by her son Vasiliy. Anna died in 1368 and was canonized in 1650 after her relics were reported to work miracles.
