Olga was born in México City on August 11, 1925 to the late Robert M. Rosenbaum and Olga Castillon Rosenbaum. She came to Laredo at a young age with her parents and her three sisters, Sophie, Gloria, and Sylvia.
She met and married the love of her life, Samuel Alexander Meyer on June 01, 1952. Together, they had three children, Frances-Carolyn, Miriam Alexis, and Alexander S.R. Meyer. Olga and Samuel were happily married for 52 wonderful years filled with family, friends, and extensive travels; visiting over 120 countries.

In the fall of 1973 Olga received a certificate of service from the U.S. Air Force for the many hours of faithful service dedicated to the Foreign Student Training Program. Olga was also a devoted member of the Laredo Luncheon Club. In addition, she pursued her love of fashion with her involvement as Director of Public Relations at Frost Brothers of Laredo for eight years.
