How to approach manager about job transfer within same company, but different site?

My wife wants to transfer from her job in one city to another city in a different part of the state. Should she talk with her current supervisor/manager first, or talk with the supervisor/manager at the new city? She doesn't want to step on anyone's toes or come off as underhanded or sneaky. She does have a good relationship with her supervisor now. Also, the reason she'd want to transfer is to be closer to extended family, so that's a legit reason, I'd think. Right?
