Elizabeth Anne Burgess Frampton
April 2, 1958 - January 1, 2021
Elizabeth Anne Burgess Frampton began her new life in heaven, holding the hands of her loving daughters, at her home on January 1, 2021. She was born April 2, 1958, in Hilo, Hawaii, to H. William Burgess and Frances Searle Keesee. The eldest of four, Liza spent much of her childhood in Honolulu, where she enjoyed the island lifestyle and attended Punahou School. In 1972, she moved to Oklahoma City and graduated from Bishop McGuinness High School. Liza attended Stephens College and graduated from Southern Methodist University in 1984 with a BA in Broadcast Journalism. Liza was a proud member of Kappa Alpha Theta fraternity, where many lifelong friendships were formed. Her far-reaching journalistic career included reporting, producing, and hosting PM Magazine, corresponding for Entertainment Tonight from Dallas, and being a health reporter in Dallas and Los Angeles. She worked for WFAA and KTVT in Dallas, as well as KCAL in Los Angeles. She was beloved and respected by her colleagues in the industry. Liza was married to Jack Frampton for sixteen years, and their union blessed them with two daughters. After becoming a mother, she took a break from television news to raise her children. Next to God, Liza's daughters were her highest priority. She delighted in volunteering at Santa Fe Christian School, Christian Youth Theater and had leadership roles in a multitude of Christian ministries and bible studies. During this period, she also worked independently in sales and video production services as well as media relations and marketing. Most recently, Liza was a graduate school teacher for multimedia communications at the Academy of Art University. Shortly before her fortieth birthday, Liza was diagnosed with a rare cancer that she battled for the remainder of her life. She endured every medical complication that came her way with resilience, hope, and an incredibly strong faith in Jesus Christ. As a public speaker, Liza's stories of inspiration helped many people endure their challenging times. The joy of the Lord was her strength. Liza will always be remembered for her kindness, sense of humor, sweet tooth, creativity, zest for life, and ability to put people at ease in any situation. She is survived by her daughters Kalli Elizabeth Frampton, Kathryn Frampton Davis and husband Lucas; sister, Rebecca McCubbin and husband David; brother, Timothy Burgess; stepbrother, Christian Keesee and husband Lawrence Keigwin; stepmother, Sandra Burgess; aunt, Anne Burgess; niece, Frances Koop and husband Joe; and nephews Thomas Love, David Love, Hunter Burgess, and Blake Keesee. She was preceded in death by her mother Frances Searle Keesee, father H. William Burgess, brother H. William Burgess, Jr.and stepfather Konrad Keesee. A private family service will be held Friday, January 8, 2021. A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date, to be announced, post Covid-19.
