Blessed Anna Maria Taigi

(It's remarkable how frequently the terms "mystic" and "mother" appear together over a Google search)

Anna Maria was a poor 18th Century Italian wife and mother who was given visions. Legend has it that she could forsee a person's death, so that she might encourage their timely preparations for a holy death and spend herself in intercession on their behalf. She healed the sick, counseled popes, and raised her children to follow Christ.
