At a certain stage in her life, she married Rodolpho Galvani, and together they had four children. In 2003, her children and founding partners established the Lina Galvani Institute, a non-profit organization committed to promoting projects that benefit community development. At the age of 100, she had 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. During those times, she still managed to carry out household duties and participate in charitable activities in São Paulo.

She is currently the 5th oldest known living person in Brazil and 2nd oldest known living person in the state of Sao Paulo behind Henriqueta Soares Marques.
