Like many others, Olga worked at Electrohome during the Second World War. She then met her future husband, and after their marriage, she was focused on raising her four children.
Olga rejoined the workforce after the end of her marriage. She worked as a dishwasher at Goudies department store cafeteria and also as a cleaner at a laundromat.

Olga was an avid newspaper reader, and was very interested in current affairs.
