I found a few words in Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon.
1. provender – “They had put away four bags of provender, made a hasty lunch, and checked on Barnabas, then lay on the study sofa — his head to the south, hers to the north.”
Provender means food: victuals.
2. threnody – “Through it all ran the threnody of country music from a boom box, turned full blast while reclaiming a rectory tool-shed, formerly lost to briars.”
A threnody is a song of lamentation for the dead.
3. adimpleate – “‘You adimpleate my spirit,’ she said.”
Adimpleate means to fill up.
