Princess Olga resided with her family at Gmunden and remained unmarried throughout her life. In 1958, shortly before Olga's death, her nephew Ernest Augustus IV, Prince of Hanover and his wife Princess Ortrud of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg named their second eldest daughter after her. Olga died of natural causes at her home, Hubertihaus, near Gmunden on 21 September 1958.
