Luke 2:36-37

“Now there was one, Anna, a Prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the Temple, but served God with fastings and Prayers night and day.”

Also living in the Temple was Saint Anna the Prophetess, who spent much time with Saint Symeon together in Prayer.
