I'm not sure if "She" is grammatically correct. It seems the meaning of this sentence is "'Her' mother and 'my' mother are sisters". Therefore I would say "Her and my mother are sisters". How would this relate to the Polish translation? Would a word for "her" and not "she" be grammatically correct here?
Those are two different things. You are proposing:
"Anna's mother and my mother are sisters." where "Anna's" is replaced by the possessive pronoun 'her'.
In Polish this would be: "Jej mama i moja mama są siostrami."
But we actually want to say:
"Anna and my mother are sisters."
Since "Anna" is the subject of the sentence, it can only be replaced by the subject pronoun "she". However, I know what you mean. These days many native speakers treat 'and' as a postposition instead of a conjuction, thus saying: "Me and my friends..."
