I don’t know anything about this statue other than what you see here. I haven’t been able to find any information on who Anna Spahn that I can definitively state is this particular woman, although the photographs of her monument are popular online. The hairstyle and clothes on this statue make me wonder if this is supposed to represent Anna herself – most cemetery statues aren’t meant to resemble the person buried there, but this one has such distinctive period-appropriate looks, different from the other statues nearby, that it makes me wonder.
