She was first married to Alexis Ivanovitch Minitzky, with whom she bore one child, a daughter: Helen Minitzky (1893-1977). A second marriage (on May 11th, 1908 - in Monaco) ensued with Frenchman, Denys Pierre Puech, a celebrated sculptor, and a French "Legion of Honor Medal" recipient, for whom she bore no heirs. Anna was also an artist, an accomplished painter in her own right (several of her works survive in private collections, ca 2009). Her untimely death in 1918 was brought upon due to illness.
