In Ohio, I can think of:
Lima, OH (I know of Trans Midwest Airlines service to TOL, DAY and CMH in the mid 80s)
Galion, OH (Allegheny Commuter to Mansfield, OH)
Mansfield, OH (Allegheny Commuter to Galion, CMH and CLE and later GCS Air Service to CLE)
Burke-Lakefront Airport in CLE was actually the ORIGINAL CLE airport served by Midway Airlines DC-9-10s to Chicago before ML switched over to Hopkins. Prior to that, Wright Airlines and BAS Airlines operated out of BKL to various destinations.

MKC had ZW service in the 80's. No more. Also in Missouri, IIRC SUS (Spirit of St Louis Airport) had commuter service for awhile but I'm not sure of the time frame.
In Illinois and I may be off on a few of these: Mt. Vernon, Matoon/Charleston, Carbondale, Galesgurg, Sterling/Rock Falls have all lost service since Deregulation. CGX of course, but that's entirely different.
Next Up: STL-OMA-STL. Just a day trip and one more state off my list.

HUF-Terre Haute, IN...Numerous carriers...UA, AL, Britt...

Here's Wisconsin. Nearly all of these were Beech 99, Metro, Banderante or light twin (Cessna, Piper, Beech) service in the post-deregulation world. OSH, JVL and MTW all had 50-seaters.
Sheboygan SBM last served by American Central to ORD
Manitowoc MTW last served by Great Lakes to ORD
Oshkosh OSH last served by Great Lakes to ORD
Fond du Lac FLD last served by Midstate to ORD
Sturgeon Bay SUE last served by Alliance to Chcago
Beloit/Janesville last served by Apex to MKE
Wisconsin Rapids ISW last served by Allied to MKE
Marshfield MFI last served by Allied to MKE
Medford MFZ last served by Allied to MKE
Stevens Point STE last served by Midstate to ORD
Rice Lake RIE last served by Lakeland to MSP
Superior SUW last served by Lakland to ORD
Ashland ASX last served by Bemidji to MSP
Hayward HYR last served by Bemidji to MSP
New Richmond last served by Blue Line to MKE
Amery last served by Blue LIne to MKE
There have also been flights to Prairie du Chien (PDC) Waukesha (UES) Lake Geneva, Kenosha (ENW) , Clintonville and Wausau (AUW) at least during the 70's, but I'm not positive any of those were after deregulation.

I didn't see it posted, so here it is:
Lancaster airport. Last served in November, courtesy of US (Air Wisconsin or Air Midwest) to PIT. That service ended as part of the US cuts at PIT along with the regional provider not extending the contract for regional flights out of PIT... Come to think of it, I think it was Air Midwest...

COE-Coeur d' Alene,Idaho last had Empire Airlines servie that ended June 30,1995.
HQM-Hoquiam,WA last had Empire also, but it ended sooner than COE.
AST- Astoria,OR same as above.
Mt Vernon,WA had kenmore Air Express Caravans for a very short period last or year before last.
Brookings,OR were served by Air Oregon with mix of Navajos and Metroliners until they moved away from courier type service and such. Operated into 1979 or 1980.
Also Youngstown, Ohio. Until the 1980s or possibly a bit later, UA operated 727s and 737s to YNG. Not sure whether UA was the only scheduled carrier at YNG. There may have been one or two others.
And Utica, NY. UCA must be the only airport that at one time was the headquarters of a scheduled regional airline, Empire Airlines, that not only no longer has any air service but the airport itself was closed about a year ago. The local airport for that area is now a few miles away at Rome, NY (RME), using a closed USAF base (Griffiss AFB). It has no scheduled service either.
Empire Airlines operated from the mid 1970s until 1986 when it was purchased by Piedmont Airlines, a couple of years before Piedmont merged with US Air. At the time Empire merged with Piedmont, their fleet included about 16 F-28s and half a dozen Metroliners. Their last 2 F-28s on order were delivered to Piedmont after the merger. Shortly before the merger, Empire moved their headquarters from Utica to Syracuse, about 50 miles away, which was their major hub, although they kept their maintenance base at UCA and maintained a few scheduled flights there. UCA's last scheduled carrier was a CO commuter carrier that pulled out in 2002.
